Mosetertoppen / Reiulf Ramstad Architects
Norwegian architecture practice Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter has completed the first and second phases of a ski resort village in Mosetertoppen. The 50,000-square-metre project, named Mosetertoppen, is located at Hafjelltoppen, Norway, housing about 1000 people.
Mosetertoppen is the new residential complex designed by Reiulf Ramstad Architects in Hafjelltoppen, a mountain town about 200 km from Oslo. The new project, will be able to house about 1000 people, is rooted in both tradition and innovation. Tradition for implementing the best of the cultural landscape and building art. Innovation to contribute with rethinking in relation to sustainable architecture and how to build in the Norwegian mountain landscape in the future.
The project will emerge as an exciting whole-year-around destination at Hafjell – a place for a multitude of activities and a place where everyone should feel welcome. Low threshold – High quality! The project’s identity must be developed with a thought of proximity, security and a high environmental and well-being factor for everyone. The place will have a strong identity with large building structures that break down into smaller village scale with intimate rooms – inside and out, to give a sense of closeness to nature and belonging to the landscaped room.
Those who visit the Moseter project will enjoy a rich place, culture and architecture experience. The project must maintain a very high architectural quality and at the same time be pragmatically organized and economically feasible. The experience of the meeting between the place’s distinctive character, future focus on building in the mountain landscape will be clarified through well-functioning and site-adapted buildings.
