C.F. Moller's climate adaptation system in Denmark is the latest instance of sustainable architecture projects that leverage the innovative strengths of urban design to resolve future worries of climate change and preserve natural landscapes. Described as an "architectural multi-tool," Storkeengen has been designed to protect the nearby town of Randers from excessive stormwater levels, but also brings the delta along the longest river in Denmark closer to the residence of the town.

The climate adaptation measures are so designed that they add value to the area. The sustainable architecture project combines wastewater solutions with a recreational natural park through the collection of water in purification basins. This supports the natural wet meadow areas before they are led to the Gudena stream.

To make this an accessible project, C.F. Moller added new pathways throughout the unique flora and fauna; they give the nature lover an enhanced experience and appreciation of the park.
