Oslo Airport City is located on a 370-hectare site beside Oslo Airport, and aims to be the first energy positive airport city in the world. Haptic Architects and Nordic – Office of Architecture, in collaboration with Buro Happold Engineering and Ipax are currently working on this new European airport city.
Using robust city planning strategies such as walkability, appropriate densities, active frontages and a car-free city centre, combined with the latest developments in technology, we will be able to create a green, sustainable city of the future.
Oslo Airport City will be a Smart City with a robust business model working at a local, national and global scale, which is rooted into the masterplan. Sustainable growth is encouraged through flexible phasing and by incorporating smart transport systems, reducing the need for car ownership. The city will have a low carbon footprint, achieved by incorporating smart technologies and passive design.
Haptic are currently working on developing Phase 1 of Oslo Airport City. Construction of the first stage is expected to begin in late 2019, with the first building completed by 2022.
