Loren Leir, Oslo, Norway
It is a real challenge to change the spirit of a place
Loren Leir, a former WWII German military base, has been redeveloped into a pedestrian mixed-use district, which reuses and integrates some of the existing historic buildings. New architecture in the Nordic vernacular, makes this new urban district attractive for all residents of all ages as well as for a variety of commercial and business occupancies.
Parks and alleys, porticoes and plazas, people of all ages, and an inspired development and city administration team have brought back to life an area carrying difficult memories for the local inhabitants. Turning around and opening a new future for such a district brought back to life a deserving area.
