Nordic Built Cities Challenge COMPETITION

MASS Lab as Architects

MASS lab was announced as one of the four finalists in the Nordic Built Cities Challenge Competition in the Faroe Islands, for the construction of a masterplan in an area of ​​over 45,000 m².


Among the finalists are still Hyde Architects (UK), Cuartoymitad Architecture & Landscape (Spain) and White Architects (Sweden). The competition objectives are the construction of a residential neighborhood in a steep terrain located on the east hill of Runavík and with views over the fjord.


Given the extent of the land and the complex construction requirements, Mass Lab designed a spatial organization that values ​​the public space and reflects the social ambition of the project.


This concept - EVERY PATIO IS FRAMED BY 4 HOUSES AND EVERY MODULE IS SURROUNDED BY 4 GARDENS – is the departure point for our contemporary proposal for the vertical challenge.


We are interested in having a dense and porous urbanization where the common areas become a continuous urban landscape with playgrounds, gardens and urban farms.
