ANOTHER NOMINATION FOR DANISH DESIGN AWARD

This is absolutely fantastic! Once again we are nominated for Danish Design Award with our upcycle interior in the Copenhagen Towers hotel, which is now a finalist in the category ‘Building Markets’.

The award jury says in its description of the design solution: 

“The Copenhagen Towers hotel in Ørestad has a high sustainability profile, thanks in no small part to the use of recycled materials, which have been incorporated into the building’s interior without compromising aesthetics or quality. In this project, the Lendager Group has found new innovative ways to upcycle used concrete, waste wood and PET plastic bottles, among other elements. That provides an advantage in the rapidly expanding circular economy and has already generated new jobs and economic growth” 

We are immensely grateful for the great collaboration with our friends Solstra Capital Partners, Norrecco, CG Jensen, Pelcon Materials & Testing, Genbyg, Burnblock, Danish Technological Institute, SAP Extreme Racing Team and Raaschou Inventar!

DANISH DESIGN AWARD FINALIST WITH THE RESOURCE ROWS

One of the finest and most recognized design awards in Denmark is Danish Design Award. And Lendager is finalist in the category “Visionary Concepts” with The Resource Rows!

The jury says about the design solution:

“In this project, Lendager Group takes on the major challenge of reusing building materials in an ambitious attempt at turning construction waste into a resource in the circular economy. The visionary project reuses building facades as modules in new buildings. That is innovative, and in addition to the sustainability benefit it also adds a historical element to new urban districts and thus provides a framing context for new residents”

Thank you to our clients NREP A/S, Arkitektgruppen A/S and MOE A/S for making sustainable history with us!

NEW COMPETITION WON IN HOLSTEBRO

Lendager Group and our planning department, Urban Metabolism, are on fire at the moment!

The talented team with BOGL, Lendager Group, Sloth Møller and architect MAA Knud Aarup Kappel has won the competition to revitalize the old Slaughterhouse area in the heart of Holstebro, Denmark. The winner proposal ‘Let’s Meet’ was announced to the public by Holstebro Municipality on Wednesday afternoon.

 

FROM SLAUGHTERHOUSE TO PUBLIC CULTURE SPACES

Through the last decade new ‘culture rooms’ have emerged and grown in both Denmark and Europe. The culture rooms have created city growth, city life, tourism and an increased interest for food culture, street art and other creative professions. A common thing for all of them is that they contain different forms of culture, they are intercultural and link creative companies, workshops and educations – and represent a strong supplement to the fine cultural institutions. The winner team embraces this development in the announced landscape plan, where the culture life of The Slaughterhouse is spread into the whole city.

 

“The winner project makes The Slaughterhouse and the whole Culture Park a driver for a new culture- and knowledge city district. A city district carried by a core story about new communities, collaborations and synergies between culture, creative business, educational institutions, citizens and the municipality.”

– Anders Lendager, Founder and CEO of Lendager Group

 

THE SLAUGHTERHOUSE PUMPS CULTURE LIFE AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP INTO THE CITY

The voluntary organization called The Culture Division in Holstebro has through a number of years created a vibrant culture house in the old slaughterhouse, which is full of life and attracts a broad variety of users. Now the culture life of The Slaughterhouse will be spread out in so-called ‘culture cubes’ around the city district. The culture cubes are a series of constructions arising out of The Slaughterhouse’s structure and are placed as ‘mini slaughterhouses” in the city district.

 

“The success of The Slaughterhouse and The Culture Division in Holstebro shows the great demand for new informal urban platforms for creativity, activity and communities. The culture cubes spread, in a playful and innovative way, The Slaughterhouse’s core idea about ‘room for unordinary partnerships’ into city district. The culture cubes challenge the function split city and create room for landscape links between culture, knowledge, health, urban and people – a modern decentralized culture landscape.”

– Stig Ammitzbøll Jørgensen, Creative Leader of Urban Metabolism at Lendager Group

 

In the project the team embraces the energy and the new tendencies, which the new slaughterhouse area represents and spreads out in the surrounding city. This is implemented through the development of dynamic and green urban spaces around The Slaughterhouse – creating spaces for meetings, collaborations and communities across the city district.

UPCYCLING AT THE NEW ARCHITECTURE SCHOOL IN AARHUS

WE HAVE BECOME PART OF NEW AARCH!

The Danish Building and Property Agency wants to increase the knowledge base and the experience with reuse and upcycling in the construction industry in practice. Thus the Danish Building and Property Agency has allocated funds to develop and include upcycle building materials in the new architecture school in Aarhus through a collaboration with Lendager Group!

 

The CEO and founder of Lendager Group, Anders Lendager, says about the project:

“We are in Lendager Group immensely happy that the Danish Building and Property Agency gives us the opportunity to share our experience. The agency is a major actor in the Danish built environment, og therefore it is so fantastic that they as public developer prioritizes innovation and sustainability. Numerous in the construction industry have pointed out that especially the public developers must lead by example, and this is what we will do together at the architecture school in Aarhus, which now takes a big step towards a more competitive and sustainable construction”.

 

The new architecture school in Aarhus is developed in a interdisciplinary collaboration with our friends Vargo Nielsen Palle, ADEPT, Rolvung & Brøndsted Arkitekter, Tri-Consult and Steensen Varming.

WE HAVE WON THE PRESTIGIOUS KULKRANSPORET COMPETITION IN AARHUS!

AARHUS CELEBRATES, COPENHAGEN CELEBRATES, EVERYONE IN THE TEAM CELEBRATES!

Lendager Group has in a shared partnership with Transform, Dissing+Weitling, Vega Landskab and Søren Jensen won the prestigious competition to develop Kulkransporet (The Coal Crane) in Aarhus’ South Harbour! The official award ceremony has just finished in Aarhus.

 

Creative Leader for Urban Metabolism in Lendager Group, Stig Ammitzbøll Jørgensen, says about the project:

“Kulkransporet appreciates the existing, cares for the self-grown and allows space for the unplanned – leading to a vibrant, including and sustainable South Harbour district. Kulkransporet has the potential to become an iconic project for sustainable architecture in Aarhus og shows new ways to how reuse of historical structures and materials can create new unique design”.  

 

The ambition for the team has been to create a diverse and sustainable commercial district based on the South Harbour’s fantastic industrial character that embraces every citizen and their initiatives. In an integrated design process and a strong collaboration we have created an ambitious plan for the city district’s future development with functions such as a city life office, a recycling center, a place for socially vulnerable individuals and a socio economic eatery that unites all users in a stronger community. Kulkransporet will become an unique, green and urban bridge area through the South Harbour – that connects harbour and city, commercial buildings and the diverse citizens of Aarhus.

Kulkransporet ties Aarhus city centre and the developing area in the South Harbour together. Already now a vibrant environment of creatives, entrepreneurs as well as established companies and industries are present in the area. Kulkransporet will, besides the bridge, consist of a park, a square and eventful towers between the urban spaces. The area’s distinct identity, life and architecture have been a great inspiration in the creation of the urban spaces. The bridge itself and the links between the areas are kept in a port industrial expression, where it will be possible to reuse some of the already existing materials in the area.

It has been a tremendous pleasure to collaborate with such a creative and professional team so far – with Transform in the lead. Now we all look very much forward to the future process in close collaboration with Aarhus Municipality!
