A new three-level enclosed shopping center in the heart of Kristiansand, fifth largest city in Norway with approximately 80,000 inhabitants. The city was founded in 1641 by the Danish King Christian IV, and planned as a strictly rectangular grid. The centre faces the city’s main pedestrian shopping street.
Originally 16 buildings of different ages and sizes enclosing an entire block, interlinked by central open courtyards, it has now been developed into the new Sandens Shopping Center, with parking below and three office levels above. Two main entrances on opposite street corners of the block are linked by an open atrium with a large elliptical skylight. The three-level open atrium offers sight lines to shops on all levels. Several ground floor stores have entrances directly from the street, and all the main bus lines stop right outside. Some of the buildings have protected facades which were refurbished and a few were rebuilt as new.
The city of Kristiansand is on the waterfront, so the building site had a very high water table and excavating and concrete works for the underground levels was carried out by divers.
