Gufunes competition published

Unanimous victory for Dutch-Danish team in Iceland

Team G+, a collaboration of Rotterdam based offices jvantspijker & partners, Felixx Landscape Architects and Andersen & Sigurdsson Architects from Copenhagen, has won the urban planning & architecture competition organized by SPILDA development for the northern waterfront of Gufunes, Reykjavik in Iceland. Their proposal, Seaside Gardens, was unanimous winner in this two-stage competition. The plan provides 45.000m2 of mixed program on an area of 4ha and is to be developed in the coming 5-10 years.

“The winning proposal is realistic and extremely well presented. It fulfills the emphases and goals of the jury well with a simple and clear overall vision. The division into key areas is purposeful with good connections between them and in accordance with the basic goals of the plan for Gufunes as a whole.”  -- jury report

‘Seaside Gardens’ strongly emphasizes the local identity of this waterfront area, tapping into both the unpolished atmosphere of the existing industrial area and the rugged natural setting of the coastline to create a resilient, mixed use neighborhood. The new settlement has the potential to become a diverse and bustling community with great connections to both the city life as well as to the shoreline, the sea, and breathtaking views on the mountains across the bay.
