As time passes the project comprises a whole city district. Although it’s separated from the downtown area, it is absolutely a part of Sandefjord’s new appearance. The district at Kilgaten will develop around a city district plaza, Kilen Square, as its main attraction. Snug and open to sunlight, it is surrounded by a variety of buildings with a diversity of functions. The district will attain its substance once the square is built; it will become a place. Building 3, the relatively small edifice on the north, scales down the development in its encounter with square.
Building 4/5, with its large and clearly defined sloping roof surface, is placed solidly and strongly against building 7, the 11-storey high-rise, a slim vertical building with a relatively modest footprint, and marks the space of the square as the main element of the area. Plaza spaces, narrow alleys, water spaces and quayside strolls comprise a versatile course of public spaces and lines of communications.
