Råderum: the good home living
The Charlotte neighbourhood in Hedehusene is developed with a focus on reinforcing the area as an attractive residential area and strengthening its relationship with the rest of the city. The project is part of Realdania’s philanthropic program ''The good home living" co-financing projects with a focus on the development and renewal of the shared facilities in social housing, showing new ways for a good home living.
The Charlotte neighborhood is strengthened as a residential district in the City Park. The primary focus is to improve connections and to accommodate opportunities for meetings between the residents and the various institutions and local groups in the Charlotte neighbourhood and Hedehusene in general.
The main concept is an adaptation of the physical conditions around new and existing compounds, creating inviting outdoor spaces and attractive conditions for pedestrians and cyclists, so that passing through the neighbourhood becomes a positive experience for locals as well as for people only passing by. New and different lighting, improved visibility and maintenance provide safety and security.
Through the modelling of terrain, vegetation, walls and surfaces and through the renewal of furniture a variety of spaces is created, from the more intimate space to the larger, open spaces, allowing a broad span of activities in the area.
A special focus is put on to creating an open connection between the neighbouring schoolyard at Charlotteskolen and the adjacent green area, so the school becomes as an integrated part of the neighbourhood and so that schoolchildren and residents can make the most of the surrounding outdoor spaces.
The project is developed with a high degree of user involvement, from the generating of ideas to the implementation, in close cooperation with Supertanker, who is managing the local area renewal.
