MVRDV & Space Group have jointly submitted a masterplan proposal for the growing Norwegian city of Stavenger. The urban masterplan includes housing, commercial and office space plus a large swath of green space and recreation opportunities. Carefully balanced to provide amenities and necessities for the booming town, the Madla-Revheim masterplan will help the define the city and help it grow in a sustainable way.
Danish firm, MVRDV  and the Norwegian firm of Space Group  joined as a team to envision a future growth pattern for Stavenger, Norway on the southwest coast. The town, which is booming from growth in the off-shore oil business is examining ways in which to achieve sustainable development. MVRDV & Space Group’s plan is one of four plans the city is considering for the Madla-Revheim  area to the south of the main city. The city’s goal of the project is to develop a sustainable growth model, envision housing, commercial sectors, plan for transportation and provide amenities for residents and visitors.
MVRDV & Space Group’s plan  calls for a large area of green urban space surrounded by housing and commercial sectors on the outer ring. The core provides space for a large recreational area, a stadium and gardening co-ops for local residents. Their plan is at once both urban and rural and combines the efficiency of a city with the health benefits of the countryside and the environment. The 780-acre site will provide space for 4,000 housing units. All 4 plans, including the one by MVRDV & Space Group, will be up on display through mid-May .
