Hørsholm proposal

Hørsholm proposal

Hørsholm is a competition proposal for a new residential area in Hørsholm, a suburb to Copenhagen. The site, which today is an abandoned hospital, is to be transformed into almost 300 new apartments. 

The main idea is to concentrate the buildings along the edges of the plot in order to make room for a larger common un-programmed forest. By shaping the forest as a hill we wanted to strengthen the site’s identity and at the same time deal with all masses locally. The hill is surrounded by a public activity loop with paths connecting to the surrounding areas. 

All new buildings are structured from radial grids and the roofs are cut in a way to give them identity, and to bring the scale down towards the hill and the neighboring areas. The south facing roofs are covered with solar panels; the north facing roofs are green. 

The whole project is designed as a 0-emission project.
