Today Mjøsfronten is difficult to access for the town's inhabitants, and Hamar Municipality therefore wants to create a new relationship between the town of Hamar and Lake Mjøsa. Mjøsfronten will become the heart of Hamar's waterfront and a central meeting place for the town's residents. Based on Gehl Architect's masterplan and the municipality's vision, the waterfront will become more accessible and contribute to strengthening the city centre along the lake. Mjøsa is Norway's largest inland lake and one of Hamar's most important resources, making Hamar a unique place.
"It is with great pleasure that we have been entrusted by the Municipality of Hamar to further develop and design Mjøsfronten. We are now entering an exciting period where we will design what will become Mjøsfronten based on an understanding of the location, good preparatory work, participatory processes and close cooperation with the municipality. In collaboration with Fragment Architects, we look forward to starting the work," says Therese Mælen-Ødegaard, architect and Managing Director of C.F. Møller Architects Norway.
