The transformation of Brøndby Strand Parkerne puts an end to the modernistic planning that for decades has isolated the housing scheme from the surrounding city and nature.
The new urban plan puts people first, accommodating the natural flow of pedestrians and cyclists to generate logical, safe and green connections, with car traffic being less dominant.
Together with a comprehensive manual for the renovation of the 3000 housing units, the appearance and comfort level will improve, while the energy consumption will drop remarkably.
URBAN POWER made the urban plan for the winning proposal teamed up with DOMUS (architects), Kragh & Berglund (landscape) and MOE (engineers).
Brøndby Strand Parkerne is a repetitive two kilometer stretch with 3000 apartments and 8000 inhabitants. It’s well situated encircled by nature, but lacks connections for people to comfortably engage with it on a daily basis.
The area will offer an array of outdoor experiences and with the new infrastructure with elevated paths for walking and cycling, navigating becomes intuitive, guiding people to four diverse recreational parks and the natural rainwater gathering systems.
The facades of the buildings are reclad with improved insulation and new possibilities for both covered and open balconies. The rooftops are transformed into common areas, with gardens, common houses or recreational spaces.
