Sustainability as a guiding principle

Based on Halsnæs Municipality's visions for the development of the area, Kregmehusene has been developed from a holistic sustainability perspective, where not least social sustainability is in focus. The principles of DGNB certification are also being applied, and the ambition is for the building to be swan-labelled.

The architecture supports the sustainability ambitions through a long-lasting design and material choice that minimises operation and maintenance costs and ensures a long building life.

"The site plan creates a hierarchy of small and large communities, the largest of which cuts across the whole area and manifests itself at the heart of the development, where the large community centre of Kregmepark is also located."

Torben Juul, Partner and Design Director

A plan that supports the community

The Kregme houses are organised in courtyard clusters, providing smaller and manageable communities within the larger community. The apartment types are mixed so that each cluster achieves a diversity of resident composition.

All homes have both a private outdoor space and face the cluster's green courtyard, so you can alternate between privacy and community, depending on your needs and temperament, and meetings and relationships happen spontaneously.

Integrated into the area and landscape

The buildings and landscaping are inspired by the classic farm motif and are based on Halsnæs' vision for the area. The Kregme houses will be uniquely situated in the beautiful landscape between Lake Arres and Roskilde Fjord.

The Kregme houses are integrated with the local area by allowing the public path system, which runs through the beautiful landscape from north to south, to pass through the Kregme houses' common areas.

The courtyard spaces are kept free of cars, allowing a community to develop around recreational functions in a safe courtyard environment.

The buildings are arranged as simple longhouses forming a series of thematic farm clusters in the landscape. Refined timber facades with a mix of vertical timber profiles, timber bays and brick facades nuance the experience depending on whether you are close or far away.
