Dissing+Weitling is designing new homes as well as a road and cycle bridge in Nærheden in Hedehusene. People living in the new district are close to Copenhagen, nature and each other. Social sustainability and the feeling of living in a community are in focus, as well as creating an attractive area for all generations and types of residents.
The neighbourhood is being built around residential clusters consisting of different-looking terraced houses, villas and apartment buildings in primarily 2-3 floors. 3,000 housing units will be built in the district by 2035, which – when fully developed – will be home to approximately 8,000 residents.
The organisation of the housing offers a meaningful foundation for the ways individuals live and for reconsidering the spaces ‘in between’.
A distinctive feature in the planning of Nærheden is the ”Loopet” park. This is a 'green' and 'blue' vein that runs through the area as a unifying element, making it easy to get around to school, the gym, shops and the community centre. The loop also provides direct access to the station and nearby green areas.
The environmental sustainability of the new district has high priority. Concrete and soil from the area have been recycled for buildings and grounds, the lighting is all LED, and rainwater is recycled.
The client aim at receiving a DGNB gold certification, which is guided by Dissing+Weitling's DGNB Auditor.
