Naestved - masterplan - urban planning - IBA

The Competition

Invited international competition developed in cooperation with danish architecture firm Site A/S.
The Competition called for a master-plan for a 119 hectare site at the edge of the town of Naestved, Denmark. This masterplan should propose a suitable density of housing as well as that it should propose ways to integrate a large sports-facility on the site.

Our idea is based on a set of "crossing" landscape bands, that weave the open space and the build environment together. Our idea is seen to be a straightforward, simple and effective in generating a identity for the area, suiting fresh modern lifestyles while it also exploiting the quality and character of the existing local landscape.
