Støberikvarteret

 

‘Ribe, the oldest city in Denmark, rises in the otherwise flat landscape, characterized by the towers of the Cathedral. The town was built on small sand banks surrounded by marshes, moorland and rivers, which has limited its possibilities of expansion. Ribe is therefore a densely populated city with a very distinctive and precise boundary towards the surrounding landscape.

Ribes old town contains a well-preserved, dense and relatively uniform building mass, rich in detail. Low-rise buildings and winding cobblestone streets create good urban spaces that are both alluring and comfortable to move through. A close cohesion between well-preserved infrastructure, housing and residential elements creates a holistic experience of the historic center.

The relocation of the old cast iron industry of Ribe Jernstøberi presents a unique opportunity for the development of an exciting city quarter. Støberikvarteret offers something new to Ribe and its surroundings, respectfully integrated with the medieval city and the surrounding landscape. The new development is adapted to the scale, streets, structure, architecture and materiality of the historic center, while at the same time maintaining an identity of its own. It’s a unique residential neighborhood in Denmark, offering modern housing directly connected to medieval Ribe and right in front of the protected marsh landscape in the Wadden Sea National Park.
