”Det høje C/The High C – a sustainable town”
Kragh&Berglund has created a design manual for the area “The High C” in Musicon, Roskilde. The design manual is describing how to make sure the vision for the landscape is realized in the future urban development. The design manual is a tool for creating a sustainable town, where the nature qualities and urban qualities are a priority.
Diagonalstrædet/The Diagonal Street has green courtyards creating a connection between nature experience and living or working by “The High C”. The development starts by promoting and prioritizing existing biotopes and adding to their value by dragging them into The Diagonal Street. The forest in the east and the meadow in the west, will be a part of The Diagonal Street by using the biotopes in meandering plant beds – adding the nature close to the buildings. This creates opportunities to stay at the edge of luxuriant forest vegetation – on benches or in the meadow vegetation – on the top of small hills.
