Narvik Gondola Station Gondola by Snorre Stinessen

Home > Winners > #103440


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Narvik Gondola Station

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Gondola

INSPIRATION:
The design forms part of the overall design philosophy of the Narvik Arctic Resort which seeks to express a connection between the city's industrial history and the surrounding dramatic nature. Narvik is shipping-port for the rail and ship transportation of iron ore, represented in the black metal cladding and shaping of the buildings of the resort and the forested mountains represented in the wooden interiors.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Narvik top station is the mountain top station for the new gondola on the top point of the ski slopes in Narvikfjellet, a ski resort directly above the Narvik city centre and characterised by one of the steepest height to length ratios - from a 1000 meter above sea level down to the sea, offering some amazing scenery with the view out the Ofoten fiord to the World Heritage area of Lofoten.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The structure is tailor made to gondola specifications and also climatic conditions, while at the same time adhering to the overall design strategy of the resort. It provides safe landing at the top of the mountain for the gondolas with visitors and skiers exiting or boarding the gondola in a sheltered space which also organise the traffic flow of people.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Built during fall of 2018, opened for the 2019 winter season in Narvik, Norway.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Architecture, Building and Structure Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The construction planning focused on optimising shape, construction and materials against heavy wind force and snow loads. Steel frame construction. Reinforced concrete foundations. Matte black metal cladding.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Length: 41m Width: 15-26m Top height above average terrain: 12m

TAGS:
