The Bands

The project is located in Kleivan, north of the Polar Circle, in an archipelago formed by an 1100 m high wall of mountains and cliffs that stretches 250 kms. into the North Sea.

The site is on a quay containing three existing buildings: a fisherman’s cottage, a cod liver oil production building, and a cod salting building all of which were part of a now abandoned fishing village. These buildings date back to the early 1900s and are protected as they are the remains of a form of life prevalent in this region which has ceased to exist.

The three existing buildings will be renovated as to provide the accommodation for the Art and Culture Production Centre. The task of the studio was to provide plans for the renovation of the three existing buildings and to design and build the exterior facilities and a new sauna (The Bands).

The Scarcity and Creativity Studio (SCS) is a graduate design and build studio within the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) whose focus is on ‘translations from drawing to building’. The studio’s aim is to expose students to the full architectural process, from interacting with the clients to building their designs. The design process starts with individual proposals by each students, from these the most interesting are chosen to proceed to the next design phase. This process is repeated three times until one project is chosen to be built. The finalist project is fully detailed and costed before traveling to the site to build, usually for four or five weeks. SCS seeks challenging contexts in which local conditions and creativity are employed to make the most of scarce resources.
