Helsinge Haveby - Village of Tomorrow

 

Helsinge Haveby (Helsinge Garden City) - Village of Tomorrow - is the concept and masterplan for a new residential enclave 55 minutes north of Copenhagen in Denmark. Transforming traditional mono-cultural agriculture fields into a diverse mix of wetlands, meadows, orchards and agroforestry, the new neighborhood enable its future residents to lead a more sustainable lifestyle with a higher degree of self-sufficiency while offering the same services, amenities and freedom, as urban life in the city.

Aiming to create an attractive alternative for the many city-dwellers looking to relocate outside of major cities, the new a new sustainable and self-sufficient residential masterplan is routed in three main themes: a robust, sustainable natural environment with a rich biodiversity, more community and an affordable lifestyle.

The winning project responds to an ever-growing demand for increased life quality in the built environment among future home owners. A new study by analysis institute YouGov, made for the Homeowners Knowledge Database, Bolius, shows that every fifth person living in the city today, plan to live in the countryside in 2030 – calling for a better, more healthy living environment, more community and affordable homes.

The traditional detached houses are replaced by social clusters integrated in the surrounding natural landscape. The majority of the land is shared among the residents allowing for a larger managed food production fully integrated between the building. By integrating residential development, decentralized energy production and local organic food production, the new masterplan concept strive to offer the ability to harvest crops directly outside your door as a fully integrated service in the line of running water in the tap or access to electric car sharing. The thesis being that the proximity to the food production can help eliminate food waste and lower the general energy consumption.
