THE COAL CRANE

THE NEW SUSTAINABLE LANDMARK FOR AARHUS

Lendager Group has in a shared partnership with TRANSFORM, DISSING+WEITLING, Vega Landskab and Søren Jensen Engineering won the prestigious competition to develop Kulkransporet (The Coal Crane) in Aarhus’ South Harbour!

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.
