LENDAGER’S FIRST COMPETITION PROJECT RISES

Now Lendager’s first competition project from 2012, The Settlers, rises for good!

At the present moment, the 40 public houses of the highest quality is being built for Lejerbo in collaboration with Brdr. Pedersen and Orbicon. The projects on 3600 square metres in total is built in a beautiful nature area in Næstved, Denmark.

The Settlers is a project of unique public houses with wooden facades and a magnificent view over the enormous nature plot. The houses are placed in four clusters, where new communities will be created among the residents.

 

Anders Lendager says about the project:

“With just three employees back in 2012, we where up against the biggest players in the industry, when we won the competition. It is thus a great landmark for us to see The Settlers being built. And it is inspiring to feel our own and the industry’s constant development around sustainability”

 

Thank you to the whole team for the fantastic collaboration. And thank you to Næstved Municipality for believing in the sustainable project and concept from the very beginning!

A GROUNDBREAKING PROJECT RISES

What a pace on the construction site – now our project The Resource Rows is already in three floors!

A high amount of the bricks come from the historical Carlsberg-brewery in Copenhagen, which had to be demolished. The material- and product innovation in Lendager UP makes it possible to give the bricks a new life in The Resource Rows – and our already existing building materials are thus circulated in the world’s future architecture!

The Lendager-family is proud to see the innovative and sustainable residential project being build in collaboration with our great friends from Arkitektgruppen, NREP and MOE.

WASTELAND OPENS IN SWEDEN

For the first time ever Lendager’s Wasteland-exhibition ‘From waste to architecture’ travels outside Denmark! The destination is the beautiful art- and design museum Vandalorum in Värnamo, Sweden.

The exhibition has its official vernissage on 16 June 2018 and is open until 13 January 2019.

DEBATE IN BØRSEN BY ANDERS LENDAGER

Great courage and visions create innovation!

Imagine that Thomas Edison waited to invent the light bulb until someone requested it. Or that Steve Jobs did not question the capabilities of the PC. How would the world look like today then?

We must dare to challenge the present way of doing things and create a demand for circular economy in the built environment! Anders Lendager encourages this in today’s debate in the leading financial paper, Børsen.

Read the debate in the paper version or on børsen.dk.

LENDAGER TCW IN JYLLANDS-POSTEN

The acknowledged Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, has been with Ditte Lysgaard Vind and Morten Risom from Lendager TCW on the recycling centre to see all its resource potentials!

The Danes collect, sort and reuse more and more waste. But back on the recycling centre large quantities of clothes in poor quality are growing continuously.

Now we look into the possibility of building houses of the old clothes in collaboration with AffaldPlus and Rambøll!
