FØRDE CITY HALL
Stein Halvorsen Arkitekter were pre-qualified in this architectonic competition. The city hall is not just a construction on its own. It is a building that will create stronger community among the residents.
The surrounding nature, especially the mountains, are important features when developing this project. The public space in front of the city hall will stretch between the Lange river and the bastion that ends close to the residents. The ground surrounding the city hall will be built with high quality slate, which will give a feeling of being closer to the mountains. During public events the bridge will be closed for cars, something that again will create a closer connection to The Cultural Center in Førde.
