We are thrilled to announce that Kvorning Design together with LPO architects as consortium lead have won the competition to develop the feasibility study and pre-concept for the transformation and total refurbishment of the former Mesterfjellet school in Larvik, Norway. Marini Consulting, Seim & Hultgreen, Sweco, Multiconsult, Norconsult, Ingenia and Ljossatt round out the rest of the team.

MESTERVERKET will feature new facilities for Larvik Museum, Frivilligheten, Friskliv og Mestring, as well as spaces for meetings, seminars, and various other activities. The project will be established in the former Mesterfjellet school building.

This endeavor is closely connected to the AKANTUS initiative, which aims to highlight Larvik’s historical significance as a national attraction, as a catalyst for urban development, and as an arena for collaboration. Kvorning Design is a key member of the winning team tasked with simultaneously developing both projects.

Øyvind Beyer, Project Developer for Larvik Municipality’s Property and Technical Operations, commented,

“The team was chosen as the competition winner due to their ability to assemble the strongest members with the greatest expertise. Their reference projects were the most relevant, and their approach to the task was the best. We are delighted that the work is already well underway, and we look forward to further collaboration.”
