Basecamp is part of a lively green area in Lyngby, surrounded by Sorgenfri Cemetery to the north and the and Lyngby Lake to the west. This the location for 640 new apartments for students, researchers, and seniors. The landscape preserves the area’s lush character. An organically winding network of paths connect the area on the roof of the building. The planting is dense and park-like with scattered trees and many different types of landscape with cut grasses, tall grasses, and plants.
A public path that is swung along the bulging building and six stories up allows visitors to experience the roof and the view over Lyngby Lake. The roof contains a lush landscape with private terraces for the residents of the building.
The shape of the building helps create interesting spaces along the exterior facades as well as an unusual inner courtyard with little terraces and recreational areas with a playing field and a playground.
BaseCamp is located in a charming green area in Lyngby bordering on Sorgenfri Cemetery to the north and the east, and Lyngby Lake to the west. Today, the neighborhood is green and lush with hedges and bushes surrounding the entire site. The main motivation behind the landscaping was to preserve the lushness of the area while using the windy network of walking paths to create a sense of unity. The landscape is green and park-like and the scattered trees and fluctuating planting ensure a high level of variety.
Kragh&Berglund planned the comprehensive and technically demanding outdoor areas. A public network of green paths wound along the sides of the building up to the sixth floor allows the visitor to experience the top of the sweeping building and the view over Lyngby Lake. A lush landscape of tall grass and a network of trails full of vantage points have been constructed on the roof.
The paths in the area have been drawn away from the building in order to create a private zone around the residential areas in a natural way. The soft and organic shape of the trails helps frame the planting and create an interesting pathway through the area and across the roof. Most of the trails were planned without curbs to support the natural and park-like character of the area.
The shape of the building helps create interesting spaces along the outer façades as well as an exciting inner courtyard full of patios and common spaces. The round squares create places for the inhabitants of the area to gather and relax.
