Jernlageret – a new part of town

Horsens is now the third fastest growing city in Denmark. Horsens is known as having a rich cultural life and many oppurtunities for experiences, and it also leads when it comes to education and business friendly environment. For the future Horsens will also remain as a harbor city. The vision for the overall design of the new neighborhood ‘Jernlageret’ is all about ‘bringing the sea towards the city, and the city closer to sea’

Sea towards the city – the city closer to the sea

In cooperation with OMJ Ejendomme, RUM did win the tender process for a new development and construction of 70,000 m2 meant for residentials, offices and commercials placed on the edge between Horsens Harbor and Horsens City. The aim is to create a new, attractive neighborhood with different options calling for a diverse range of citizens. The most important quality to emphasize in the planning is the placement next to the sea. Therefore, the water is a continuous design element in many aspects of the design, which also counts strategies for sustainable handling of the climate changes.
