Henning Larsen, in collaboration with engineers and biologists at MOE, developed a sustainable community design called Fælledby that is entirely constructed from timber. The low-rise housing scheme is set to be constructed on a former junkyard site just outside of Copenhagen, Denmark, and will provide space for 7,000 residents.
The first-of-its-kind all-timer neighborhood in Copenhagen was thoughtfully developed to balance the needs of people and animals, and is said to "place nature at its core." The structures of the neighborhood take inspiration from a rural village and will boast a reduced carbon footprint thanks to the use of timber.
The 18-hectare development is set to be divided into three neighborhoods to provide a sense of community within each section, with greenery that meanders between all clusters.
