Ikki eiti á ambitiøsur hugburður, sum merkir framtíðarætlanirnar hjá Klaksvíkar Kommunu. Tey hava tosað og tosað um handan miðbýin í allar ævir, men nú skal eg eisini lova fyri, at okkurt hendir har norðuri. Altjóða útbjóðing og vinnarar er háttvirda arkitektatovan hjá Henning Larsen. Ætlanin ljóðar næstan eitt sindur svaklig, tí hon skal eitast at minka um vindin í Klaksvík. Kann hetta veruliga lata seg gera, vil eg fegin biðja um eitt stk vindminking her í Havn eisini, takk! - Tað sær eisini flott út. Vinnarauppskotið er grundað á ein stjørnuskapaðan struktur har miðjan á stjørnini er nýggja býarmiðjan.

”Our project consists of a continuous plan that connects the three new city districts with each their own theme”, explains architect and architectural design manager Ósbjørn Jacobsen, Henning Larsen Architects. “The plan offers a new green, recreational area; an urban development with a central, unifying city square and shops, cafes and a library and, as the third new district, a maritime area with a new cultural house and a new maritime museum, among others.” Klaksvík is situated in the northern part of the Faroe Islands on two opposite mountain ridges, connected by a low-lying area where two inlets meet. The location of the city makes it particularly exposed to the wind. “The last 50 years’ urban development in Klaksvík has allowed the wind to whistle through the streets without hindrance. As opposed to this, the proposal for the new city centre takes a historic, urban approach and re-establishes a city centre with a comfortable microclimate”, says Ósbjørn Jacobsen. “Displaced building volumes break the dominant winds and contribute to providing new comfortable shelter zones in the city.” On the basis of the winning proposal, the Municipality of Klaksvík will prepare a new district plan for the development of the city. The plan is expected to be ready during 2012.
