The large changes are started and strengthened in local areas. Our vision for Straumes new architecture can be categorized as holistic local thinking, where the ultimate resource for transformation is nature, individual residents and visitors- not the architect, contractor, or business owners.
The new urbanization process is focused on the central square. The size of the square and the central placement in the masterplan are strong and sympathetic qualities in the development of Straume. Therefore, the square and the adjacent architecture is the natural heart of the Sotra Coastal City and strengthen urban life, shopping, nature, and cultural experiences.
