Ringkøbing K is the vision of a scenic town releasing the full potential of the unique interplay between residence, community and landscape. Over the next 30 years Ringkøbing K will develop into a residential area of 1100 homes in a natural resort by Ringkøbing Fjord on the west coast of the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. Small clusters of houses are organized in a structure that varies in density and adapts to the local landscape. The neighborhoods make out a relatively close, but generous housing. Direct access to nature and a vibrant local community are the core values of the building plan.
Ringkøbing K accomodates all aspects of modern way of life while giving residents the unique experience of living in the wild nature. The approach has created new housing typologies that are unique to Ringkøbing K, and thus create the opportunity to establish a new market of desirable and affordable housing.

Offsetting the orientation and creating spatial variety provides alternate views and access to the natural landscapes and supports the social relations between the future citizens of Ringkøbing K. A strategy that also creates a diverse density and adapts to the local conditions. A relatively dense, yet generous building mass that provides a kind of privatized collective, ushering in a progressive and modern way of life. At strategic locations within the structure, social centers of gravity are placed. These will form an open and flexible framework that will work as and incubator for cultural activities that contribute to the development of the rural communities.
