Award-winning green masterplan for new residential area
Our award-winning masterplan for the area has a central element in a green 'spinal cord', which meanders from east to west, connecting housing clusters and offering meeting places such as a communal kitchen, laundry and community house.

The new residential area, Degnejorden, is being developed in Lejre as a modern, social village community close to the bustling town. Back in 2016, Dissing+Weitling won an open competition for a masterplan for the new residential area on a green and lush 5-hectare site.
In collaboration with MOVE Arkitektur, we developed a proposal focusing on the community, nature and freedom – a modern village, driven by the residents, and offering a diverse and spacious environment with room for all ages and social groups.
The green 'spinal cord' is a modern interpretation of the village pond – a green communal space between the housing clusters.
