Overview

Lyngby City Hall is the focal point for an entire region's traders. KHR won an architectural competition in 2013, organised by Lyngby-Taarbæk Municipality, with the aim of bringing together more activities at the existing city hall by adding a new building of 5,000 sqm. The winning project proposal had to reinforce the existing urbanity, but was unfortunately never realised for various reasons.

Inspired by the art of

The town hall is in need of modernisation, both to make room for more and for contemporary interaction between municipal employees and citizens. The project proposal therefore aims for a considerate adaptation that visually and functionally leaves a contemporary democratisation of the building that inspires greater degrees of openness, both inside and outside the building.

The porous structure of the project as an extended green building membrane is inspired by the many degrees of speed at which the context is experienced today.

Social and cultural development

Lyngby Town Hall is part of our cultural heritage as a national modernist work. The building has been given a special status that refers to the surrounding context. An icon of social and cultural development.

Against this background, the project proposal from KHR's architects for the Lyngby City Hall project is based on the idea that the building should be preserved in its current form, but that the identity should be sharpened through the project.
