KCAp designs waterfront regeneration framework for former maritime-industrial area

The urban plan for FredericiaC is a development strategy for a 21 ha brownfield site at the seafront of Fredericia, which will expand the inner city by 25%. The plan sets out a framework of qualitative public spaces and the conditions for a mixed urban program of 265,000 sq m. The project will establish a new destination in the region, create new correlations in the city and add a vibrant and inclusive mixed urban district in an attractive maritime environment.

Fredericia's history as a military garrison town is still very present in its intact vaults and the renaissance grid layout. To the south, the city was detached from its seafront by its active harbour. Now that part of the industry is cleared, a unique opportunity presents itself to extend the centre to the waterfront and shape a vibrant and inclusive mixed urban district.

With respect to the city's scale and history, the development strategy sets out a sensitive network of public space. The existing seafront will be enriched by a network of canals, offering a strong presence of water into the city. The city's characteristic grid and view lines are extended seamlessly into the site. The open ends of the green rampart around the city are connected by a new central park strip which marks the position of the former southern vault.

Within this framework, planning principles define a varied mix of different uses, urban typologies and architectural expressions. The concept results in a coherent urban ensemble, which remains highly adaptable to any future changes that might affect the development process. The plan sets out a flexible phasing strategy and invites stakeholders and end users to take initiative. A financial strategy guaranties the feasibility of the project in every stage.

An all-embracing sustainability strategy defines specialised educational institutions, a cultural cluster and urban farming as social drivers of the plan. Regarding mobility, cycle lanes, pedestrian and shared space routes promote walking and cycling over car use. Furthermore, the plan includes strategies on water and waste management, parking, microclimate and energy, which renders the building operation energy and CO2 neutral.

Flexible & green Logistics Centre completed by C. F. Moller for clothing firm Bestseller

The new logistics centre, located on the E45 motorway at Haderslev, supplies all of the clothing company Bestseller’s boutiques, right across Europe. The centre has been planned to occupy three parallel bands surrounding a main avenue. One of these bands contains the main entrance, office and staff facilities, together with an area with loading ramps for trucks, while the second contains an automated sorting facility, and the third fully-automated mini-load stores.

The planned layout provides the most flexible arrangement, and allows for a possible future expansion of the logistics centre to triple size, i.e. 150,000 sq m. The idea was to create an industrial building that would go beyond the typical standardised solutions for logistic facilities, and create a building with a strong identity that would add an experiential quality to its surroundings. The tall mini-load stores therefore take the form of solid, sculptural structures, clad with wooden slats and equipped with transparent sides which allow motorists on the motorway to see the cranes at work.

There has been a strong focus on sustainability in the planning, using the British environmental standard BREEAM Industrial, including recycled materials in the construction process, large-scale green roofs, low-energy machine equipment and the use of renewable energy such as solar and biodiesel for heating. As a first for this type of building, it is rated Energy class 1 according to Danish codes.

Throughout the building, emphasis has been placed on creating pleasant and safe workplaces, allowing daylight to enter, and on creating an intimacy with the landscape and the views, including the surrounding site covering approximately 500,000 sq m in all which has been designed to form a natural area with oak woods, wetlands and meadows with grazing cows as a fertile environment for a rich flora and fauna.

World's largest ski dome for Randers?

“Most ski domes around the world are designed from the inside with no or very few windows” explains CEBRA, the Danish architecture studio behind the concept for the world’s largest ski dome, destined for the city of Randers, Denmark. They continue: “An essential part of the skiing experience consists in being able to enjoy the surrounding scenery. The proposal’s high-rise composition of three arches combined with a filigree façade structure allows for spectacular views over Randers.”

The team have thus composed a 100,000 sq m, 3,000-capacity ski dome which bridges the River Gudenaen and creates a medley of open leisure spaces. From above, the three arches form a snowflake-style arrangement, each of the slopes transforming into a different pistes inside. In an effort to make the interior slopes as realistic as possible, the team at CEBRA have modelled them on existing pistes in the popular skiing resort of Alpe d’Huez in France.

Each slope will have a different degree of difficulty and the gradients are copied over from the most popular pites in the French Alps. No artificial terrain on offer here either as real snow will be used throughout. Chairlifts and elevators will deposit users at their chosen destination and CEBRA has ensured a measure of flexibility, enabling the topography of each slope to be altered over time so that visitors can enjoy a variety of skiing experiences without ever leaving Randers.

Intelligent design is not confined to indoors as the architects have used the building’s exterior in a number of engaging ways to maximise usage. The uppermost arch - which reaches 110m into the sky above the river - will be used for the most difficult pistes, creating two black runs that can be used year-round. The next level down will sport a skate park or ‘urban playground’ and the lowest level, a green city park.

Facebook is building its eighth data center

Views Source HERE



We just announced we're building our eighth data center -- and our third in Europe -- in Odense, Denmark. Like the data center I visited in Fort Worth, Texas on Tuesday, this one will be powered by 100% renewable energy and support thousands of jobs in the community over the next few years.
