A common house at the dock
At Aarhus Harbour Kragh&Berglund has created the landscape around Generationernes Hus (the house of generations). The house will accommodate several generations and functions; day care, nursing home, library and apartments for families, students and elderly.
Just as the house accommodates several functions, so does the space around the house, where a variety of zones include the functions. The zones will be including various purposes and functions such as play, rest, sport and recreation. All the outdoor areas ensure climate proofing as well as inclusion and activation of the different user groups.
Generationernes Hus and the landscape around is designed with the universal design thinking – making sure that access and availability is equal to all regardless of feasibility. The settlement is placed on a concrete surface – creating a maritime atmosphere at the pier. The green areas are created with various seating possibilities for rest and recreational purposes and more active areas for play and sport.
