dc.descriptionUrbanisation is gradually changing our cities. Industry is relocating outside the city core and areas where production took place are left to be integrated into future developments. Industrial facilities are often characterised as hostile environments. The landscape and the buildings are usually based on logistics and rational decisions. These buildings are often designed for machines and efficiency rather than for the human body, and most structures are completely inaccessible. How can these buildings adapt to a new program? Are they able to continue their integrity but be redefined with a new identity? In which way can their history continue to play a role in our future? There are many beautiful examples of historic buildings that have been transformed and given a new purpose. The merging between old and new provides exciting and unique spatial qualities that a new building cannot provide. I question whether the introduction of a program in the early stages sometimes overshadows the existing value and opportunities. In this matter, I am critical that these areas which are part of our cultural heritage are transformed into residential neighbourhoods for the sake of economical profit and continue to be withheld from the public. During my diploma semester, I have investigated different ways to approach and transform an old industrial facility without a program being the focal point. Instead, my focus has been to highlight architectonical qualities and provide urban accessibility. My project take an old industrial mill facility with more than 250 years of history as its point of departure. Hegreneset is situated on a peninsula in Bergen that is one of the most attractive locations on the coastline. Though the milling industry has played an important part in the site’s history it has not been in operation for almost 30 years. I have researched the developments of Hegreneset and my project has accumulated into five booklets that present my research, process and project proposal:en_US
