An open and welcoming community house rises in the Southeastern Danish municipality
In collaboration with MOE and ETN Architects (landscape), PLH Architects won first prize in an invitational competition for the new city hall in Vordingborg – Citizens’ House (“Borgernes Hus”). The building will be connected to the already-constructed job center and citizens’ service, integrating all three functions into a single building that will appear as a coherent unit in the context of the town center.
The city hall will be a flexible and modern workplace, providing a setting for an attractive and inspiring working environment, while at the same time being an accessible and sustainable building for use by citizens and associations.
Vordingborg’s new city hall will be organized around a central atrium – the social hub – providing access to the building's four floors. The main entrance will be located at Valdemarstorvet, and the new building will include an association zone with meeting rooms, a roof terrace with a view of Vordingborg’s famous Goose Tower (“Gåsetårnet”), solar panels on the roof, a multifunctional city hall and 220 window-facing workplaces.
