2014-12-04-44 mill. for project in Hedehusene
44 mill. for Råderum
The project Råderum in Charlottegården (Hedehusene) is now close to realization. The project has received 44 million. DKK. from Landsbyggefonden, Realdania and Taastrup Municipality.
Råderum is developed in collaboration between the Høje-Taastrup Municipality and the housing associations Domea and VIBO to establish a physical connection between Charlotte neighbourhood and Hedehusene. In future, the area will also be a neighbour to the new urban development area Nærheden.
The project has been developed in close dialogue with the residents, from idea generation to implementation, with a focus on ownership, trust and confidence. The goal was both to strengthen the link between Charlottegården and Hedehusene city and supporting local ownership and affiliation through local participation.
The project creates a more natural and open connection between Charlottegården and the rest of Hedehusene, combined with a variety of spaces for activity and stay that will serve as common space for local residents, citizens in Hedehusene and local community associations and institutions.
The involvement process included workshops, inspiration tours, hands-on workshops, etc., during which we have set form on residents' dreams and desires. For us, it has been of importance, that the conversion process was based on the existing values and qualities, so there is a built-in familiarity in the new.
LIW planning has recently worked with a major focus on environmental improvements in a number of vulnerable neighbourhoods where the dialogue with the residents has been the starting point for change. Approximately 25% of the population lives in public housing and therefore it is an important and exciting task, to contribute to strengthening the quality of these areas with attractive and inspiring outdoor spaces.

scouting life in Herlufmagle!
In cooperation with AART Architects, LIW planning, designed the proposal for a new multi-purpose outdoor center, which will provide Scouts, schools, clubs and other organizations with new opportunities for learning, play and movement in Herlufmagles beautiful hilly landscape. The Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities is supporting the project by 6 mio. DKK, thereby having the financing in place, and is expected to be carried out shortly.
The project is named Nunatakken, which means cliff in Greenland, and is inspired by the glacial shaping of the landscape. And exactly the landscape is central to the proposal, where the inside and outside merge in the surrounding landscape with different configurations of spaces, materials and furniture, each challenging various intelligences (Howard Gardner's eight intelligences).
In the middle of the landscape, the building (nunatak) rises as a solid rock and escalates into a 15 meter high climbing wall, also serving as a vantage point for bird watchers and stargazers. A recreational path linking the area to the surrounding landscape creates a natural focal point around the center.
The Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities describes the project as ".....an extremely ambitious example of how a scout group and a municipality in partnership with a number of other associations and self-organized users may think their needs together. Nunatakken is both architecturally and functionally a unique open construction, which… will inspire the design of future outdoor construction projects across the country. "

Culture Square in Roskilde supported by LOA
The Danish Foundation for Culture and Sports Facilities supports the master plan for the development of The Quantum Leap in Musicon, Roskilde with 2.6 million kr.
In the fall of 2013 LIW designed the master plan for urban spaces around the heart of Musicon: a cultural square named "The Quantum Leap". It is a large urban space with its 6,650 m². The space is physically divided into three smaller spaces with different themes, the main sites being the forecourt to Denmark's New Rock Museum “The Red Carpet”. The spaces are connected by small roads through the site.
The master plan is developed in collaboration with actors at Musicon, The Danish Rock Museum (ROCKmagneten) and Roskilde Municipality.
Currently LIW planning is working with several projects with a focus on combining cultural activities with urban life. ROCKmagneten in Roskilde, Østre Kulturcenter in Odense and Kulturtorvet in Varde are examples of places where LIW has created cultural sites in widely different urban contexts. Common to these projects is their focus on supporting functions and activities that require a specific framework and at the same time work as everyday-spaces that invite and inspire to new uses and activities.
