scs: art and culture production centre
The Art and Culture Production Centre is located in Kleivan, Vestvagoy Municipality, Lofoten on a quay containing
three existing buildings: a fisherman’s cottage, a cod liver oil production building, and a cod salting building, all of
which were part of a now abandoned fishing village. These buildings date back to the early 1900s and are
considered historically important because they are the remains of a form of life prevalent in this region which has
disappeared. For these reasons the quay and three buildings have been listed in the "Cultural Heritage Plan for
Lofoten" adopted by Nordland county in 2007, thus the external appearance of these buildings can be renovated,
but not changed, while the interiors can be modified to cater for new uses. The second part of this project
involves the upgrading of the quay, possibly incorporating a new terrace and sauna to provide facilities for those
involved in the activities of the Art and Culture Production Centre.
The three existing buildings will be renovated to provide facilities for art and cultural production activities as well
as residential accommodation. Diverse groups will occupy these facilities for varying periods of time. The Centre is
meant to be a public resource and become a reference for similar initiatives throughout the region.
The task of the studio is to design plans for the conversion of the quay and its buildings into an Art and Culture
Production Centre through the renovation of the interior of the three existing buildings and to design and build a
project for the the quay.
