URBAN POWER developed the urban plan for Stejlepladsen, teamed up with Christensen & Co (architects), Kragh & Berglund (landscape), MOE (construction and environment) and Urban Creators (traffic).
Situated south of Copenhagen, Stejlepladsen was constructed in the 70’s as a landfill next to the fishing community. With as much respect as possible for the existing way of life at the harbour front, the new plan suggests a low-rise and dense residential neighbourhood to create shielded nooks and crannies for communal activities to take hold in.
To reflect the characteristics of the area the typologies, materials and architectural style of the buildings will vary, incorporating the up- and recycling of building materials for future construction or adaptation.
