The proposal strengthens the identity of Jessheim by creating informal meeting places, establishing new sustainable housing as well as introducing a green belt to connect new and existing common areas in the city. This emphasizes both sustainable living and a larger narrative about the history and identity of Jessheim.

The project consists of a flexible and scalable urban structure that ensures green and blue qualities and facilitates a variety of communities. Based on existing common arenas in the city centre a green belt connects Jessheim’s central areas with its surrounding landscape and particular nature.
Large and small communities are facilitated through a sharing and repair culture to strengthens the identity of the place. The public spaces consist of parks, streets and squares for shopping and leisure. From public and generous urban spaces to the more sheltered courtyards and parks they all work as important meeting places for the different communities in the city.
