Ruter Gange

In collaboration with Ruter (done at Oslo School of Architecture and Design)




Population growth in Oslo and Akershus is putting increased demand on the transport infrastructure. Ruter Gange looks to solve this challenge by expanding the definition of what public transport means in the urban environment, offering a more holistic approach to moving citizens around the city.




It does this by integrating walking as a supported and equally valid mode of transport in Ruter's systems.  Such an approach will contribute to an active walking culture that helps relieve public transport in the most pressing areas and contribute to a better environment and more active city life.





In addition to the enormous benefits in the field of environment, health and economics, such an approach will contribute to an active walking culture that helps relieve public transport in the most pressing areas and contribute to a better and more active city life.

Urbane Grendehus

Project for DOGA (Design and Architecture Norway), with support from Termowood, Vestre, MAD Architects and Superwood



Urbane Grendehus (urban community houses) is a digital service that offers non-commercial, shared meeting places in cities


Fix your bike, make some waffles or eat dinner with your neighbours

The service has two parts: Part 1. Small, modular community houses are built in former parking lots and other temporarily unused spaces in the city. These can accommodate a range of different uses (kitchen, work-places, workshop, greenhouses etc.)


Prototype at Nordic Edge Expo 2017

Part 2. Citizens, organisations and neighbourhoods get access to use and share these community houses through a digital service that matches users with available houses that fits their needs


Booking via the app lets you which houses are available in your neighbourhood

As a digital urban service ‘Urbane Grendehus’ will be a scalable, flexible and democratic way to share urban resources.


Prototype at Nordic Edge Expo 2017

Transforming parking-lots to community-houses can be used in urban strategies for sustainable transformation and for engaging neighbourhoods and citizens
