Student housing strategy, Trondheim

1.00

Type: Prequalified competition
Client: Student Welfare Organisation in Trondheim (SiT)
Program: Strategic development plan
Size: +15000m2
Location: Trondheim
Status: Delivered 2013

Team: Henning Sunde, Laurence Antelme, Kenneth Dahlgren
Collaborators: Architectopia, Lusparken and Landskaperiet

In November 2012, SiT Housing invited Rodeo to partake in a parallel assignment to develop a new master plan for their student housing area Moholt in Trondheim. The task centred around a conceptual development able to reference the history of the area while providing an attractive campus for current and future students. The economic and financial merits of the project, such as student units pr area, and possibilities for tiered developments were also pivotal. As were issues of sustainability, focusing on energy consumption, materials, mobility, and living conditions, and the integration of the design with the existing urban fabric.

Rodeo's design suggests a holistic project centred on a vibrant, international, and eco-friendly student lifestyle. The main design interventions revolve around a central student square with easy infrastructural access for cars, public transport, and bicycles. The square doubles as a public urban space with amenities that seek to attract urban life on to campus such as cafes, shops, business centres, entrepreneurial possibilities, etc. Adjacent to the square are more secluded green areas for R and R. The housing units are diverse, ranging from student hotels to small allotment developments. Common for all the housing typologies are well designed living areas and common areas, multipurpose functionality, and a flexible, tiered development system.
