Danish architectural firm WE architecture & JWH Arkitekter have won the 2nd prize for the Rødovre Syd urban planning project. Rødovre Syd is a suburbian area of Copenhagen, characterized by a mixture of open green areas, a network of roads, large apartment complexes and low row-housing enclaves.
The project offers to transform the existing planning by adding buildings in a pixel-patchwork, as an addition to the 60’ies planning. The greater density allows for urban feel and commercial activities at specific zoom-in areas as well as a greater variety of residential.
By creating a green loop, along which the zoom-in areas are located and the densification occurs the infrastructure prioritizes pedestrians and bicyclists. Movement along the loop offers a varied experience, switching between low-dense areas, green space and nerve centers such as a market place, a sports area and a station plaza.
