masterplan for a radical transformation of a former industrial area at Mjøsa, Huntonstranda,
into an area attractive for development to housing, hotels, services and culture. Gjøvik, NO
the Bureau in collaboration with office Holt O’Brien
a recipe for a urban development near the lake
The center of Gjøvik is close to Mjøsa, but large industrial areas and strong barriers provide little daily contact with the water for most people. It is no secret that proximity to water has an impact on both quality and property price. It has been a fundamental vision for us to invite Mjøsa into the development of Huntonstranda from the start: physically bringing the water into channels, wetlands and overwater dams into the urban fabric of the new district.
The competition opens for the development of 110,000 m2 of housing, as well as necessary infrastructure and additional function. Vision for Gjøvik is that the city should be a vibrant city life filled with experiences, great architecture, corridors, attractive homes, beautiful streets, versatile cultural and outdoor life and a dynamic shopping environment.

TOWN PLANNING STRATEGY - 4 AXIS
In order to link the Hunton area better with the rest of Gjøvik, we have seen how important connections can be further developed and utilized better in the future. The study is overall and builds the gateway plan to Gjøvik Center
4 connection axis
Hunnselva Cultural Axis
Hunnselava is of course an important axis, and it is working to create good city spaces and traffic jams alongside this. The color spectrum and upgrading of precursor connections along the north side of the river are good examples. We see the possibility of strengthening this extravagant as a "culture axis" all the way to the seas. Here, central culture and history functions can be placed, along with permanent and temporary installations, connecting urban spaces to the river.
Hunnselva Cultural Axis
Activity and Park
Activity and Park
Strandveien and Parkveien together constitute an important and good area from CC Gjøvik and past the train and bus station, towards the river and towards Huntonstranda. Between them are important center beads like Gjøvik Cultural Center, nice green areas and a first-rate skate park. The parkeve is provided with a number of transport features such as parking and bus parking, but we believe this connection can be further developed with exciting function combinations with more green and
activities for young people, adults and elderly.
Linking between the NTNU Capus and Hunton area becomes important, especially considering that more students and staff may be living in the competition area. We believe that you can look at the possibility of a "Nutrition and Knowledge Case" that provides good cycling and walking connections to NTNU, and which can also be linked to dedicated functions like Gjøvik Farm and Hunton Fiber. Perhaps there may be a kind of nutrition museum at the factory, or a workshop where you can test your own skills. In the competition area, we continue this axis with a start-up center for basic environment, where you can hire a flexible office, hire a workshop or access to industrial kitchen. In Gjøvik where the dropout from secondary school to secondary education is relatively high, it is important to create an early interest in knowledge, and there is a good opportunity to integrate this into future urban development.
Together with Storgta and Strandvegen, Hunnsvegen is a central axis in Gjøvik. They are where two gategrid meet and a lot of both bus, car and pedestrian traffic are taking place here. We propose to prioritize an upgrade of this with more focus on accessibility and offerings for walking cycling. Hunnsvegen leads down to the bus stop, and with possibilities for developing the Bryggeveg area, an extension over (or below) the railway can be thought of as a natural axis in this area. New crossings of the railway are important to link the city with Mjøsa, and it can be combined with a new building, for example. a new track.
URBAN STRUCTURE BUILDING PROCESS
RESILIENCE STRATEGY BETWEEN BUILDING
Permeable soil corridors in between buildings to manage the water
Green roofs to collect water and integrated water storage system
We want Hunton Kanalby to be a varied town where both Jørgen Hattemaker and King Solomon feel at home. And it should be a good place to grow up and a good place to grow old. There has been a large amount of flexibility in plan and typology so that development can respond to the market. We have looked at the current situation, and made suggestions for various housing typologies, as well as some specific programs we believe will respond well to the market and the desire for sustainable development. With only two hours from Oslo, Gjøvik can tempt both urban life and proximity to nature, and better housing prices than in the fiery Oslogryta. The way we work is changing and there is potential for reaching more of those who are in full-time jobs but who do not have to check in at the office every weekday. There is a tendency for the work radius for work and living, which may well include Gjøvik-Oslo
The townhouses are the most dominant building typology in Hunton Beach. They vary between 2-4 floors. The first floor is flexible and possibly rented as a two-room apartment, or used for commercial purposes. This allows smaller / medium sized stores, galleries and showrooms to be established in the area. The house is 5 meters wide, allowing a simple massive layer to buckle between the long side of the wall. Internally, the house can be furnished as residents wish.
THE URBAN VILLA
The Urban Villa are 5-6 storey buildings that can contain a varied number of programs and apartment units. The building has a central circulation core which also serves as a light well. The structure is a combination of wooden beams and pillars with solid walls and floors. This gives the floor a great deal of flexibility in how
THE LONG HOUSES
A Long house is a 3/4 storey building that can contain housing, office or out-of-town nutrition. The structure is made of simple solid wood wall and floor construction, which makes it flexible in use.
lthree steps for developing
Cultural buildings and buildings next to the northern end of the area are built.There is a bridge that connects Gjøvik Center with the new cultural house, and a bridge connecting the Cultural House to Hunton Beach
The development continues along the lake and the channel structure is done. Three new anchors, the community center, the Observatory Tower and the Community Center are being established to strengthen new developments. The kolinihagene in the south goes into its final phase.
R4 is established with gate profile, and the remaining part of the development can take place
