The area is hilly and inaccessible, with vertical cliffs down to the sea, except at Eidsvika. The building will be carefully positioned in the landscape in order to minimise the need for excavation. Kildn has a semi-circular shape with a roof that slopes down from the highest point in the north to the lowest point in the south. It will be built at Eidsvika, with the quays and terminals hugging the terrain.
The aim is for Kildn to fit as naturally into the landscape as possible. All natural environments are vulnerable, and we want to protect the environment as much as possible. Existing recreation activities will be improved by making them more accessible and by incorporating universal design principles. Additional activities will be made available and added at Eidsvika. We will also carry out thorough environmental impact assessments and get the input of experts and the residents of Askøy during the planning process.
Kildn aims to offer new scenic viewpoints, accessible architecture and a green rooftop terrace as part of its new recreational offering for hikers in Askøy.
