Short facts

  • Architect: Transborder Studio AS

Car-free city life
Landbrukskvartalet will demonstrate how a car-free city lifestyle is both attractive and possible. The area will be characterised by good urban spaces and a high standard of living, a mix of functions and local services, minimal car parking combined with high quality bicycle facilities and pedestrianised areas, sharing schemes for bicycles, cars and more.

Smart energy solutions at the neighbourhood level
Landbrukskvartalet will showcase smart and climate-friendly energy solutions at an urban level. A microgrid will be established for energy, allowing for the exchange of energy between buildings and other functions, distribution of excess heat and locally generated renewable energy (solar energy amongst others), as well as reduction of peak loads through energy storage. As much of the area´s required energy as possible will be supplied by local sources, including near-zero energy buildings and potentially plus-houses integrated in the local microgrid.

Use of wood and biomass-based building materials
Landbrukskvartalet will be a demonstration project for how agriculture can contribute to the green shift, as the main source of renewable raw materials and building materials. Landbrukskvartalet will show how greenhouse gases from the building industry can be significantly reduced through the use of wood and biomass-based building materials.

Innovative conservation
The conservation strategy for Landbrukskvartalet is based on the historical flow of dairy products in and out of the dairy which used to occupy the site, but also encompasses the upgrading and transformation of historical buildings. Landbrukskvartalet will demonstrate innovative and climate friendly solutions for conservation of heritage buildings through the integration of both new and existing buildings in a common system to optimise energy flows and energy consumption.

A greenhouse on the roof
Planting and green infrastructure will be central to Landbrukskvartalet´s identity. Planting will be used for food production in connection with the district´s businesses, as well as for aesthetic purposes. The project also intends to explore roof-based greenhouses managed by local businesses.

With financial support from ENOVA, Landbrukskvartaetl will be the first complete city block in the FutureBuilt program and a showcase for climate-friendly urban development.
