Three housing associations took part in Aarhus Municipality’s mini-competition for a new youth housing project on Randersvej. The winner is Brabrand Housing Association, with a project designed by C.F. Møller Architects. As part of the project, several green areas will be established, including a large courtyard space and a number of balconies for green cultivation, facing towards Randersvej.
The hall of residence is thus also contributing to making Randersvej greener, which is one of Aarhus Municipality’s ambitions.In the competition, there was focus on ensuring a low rent level without compromising on a high residential quality and quality of life, and the winning project is praised for its fine adjustment to the quarter’s scale and architecture.
The project is the first in a series of new complexes that is currently being created, as the area along Randersvej is built up. The youth housing units’ immediate neighbour will be a private residential project, and the coming local plan will be drawn up in collaboration with the private urban developer.
