Fish Market Building with Restaurant and Tourist Information Centre in Bergen
The Fish Market building in Bergen was designed in the very centre of the city, in the close vicinity of the merchant tenement houses listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The neighborhood of the tenement houses, the tourist attraction of the market and its cultural significance for the city called “gateway to fjords” influenced the final shape of the winning architectural concept developed by the Norwegian studio Eder Biesel Arkitekter.
The NAVIC team was responsible for the design of the building’s structure in all phases of the project – from the concept to the executive design and supervision during the construction period. Complicated ground conditions and the requirements imposed by the architectural body as well as organization of the interior of the building posed a great challenge to the designers. Due to the limitations resulting from the location of the building in a historic environment, the design required close coordination with all industries, conservation officer and geotechnical specialists. Implementation of the project in 3D software made it possible to meet all the requirements. The building was completed in 2012.
