Thors Have

The development distinguishes itself through its distinctive, contemporary idiom.

The new development in Silkeborg consists of 32 residences, distributed between five duplexes and 22 terraced houses gathered in smaller stems.

The new development in Silkeborg consists of 32 residences, distributed between five duplexes and 22 terraced houses gathered in smaller stems. Architecturally, the development continues in the spirit of the area’s existing housing, which consists of houses from the 1930s and 1940s, many of which are of high architectural value. The new duplexes are in keeping with the scale, rhythm and orientation of the existing buildings, and are constructed with brick and tile cladding on façades and roof. The brick cladding material is a natural reference to the existing buildings, and a simple, contemporary expression is achieved.

The development’s duplexes are characterised by a vertical division, adding spacious value to the residences, and both residences in the individual duplex have their own entrance and exit directly into the garden. By virtue of their orientation and scale, the terraced houses refer to the low section of the adjoining Marienlund nursing home, gently integrating the development into the area.

Thors Have becomes part of a modern, dense and low development, providing a carefully-considered answer as to how the area’s strong qualities can be rethought into a time with different requirements and trends. The development distinguishes itself through its distinctive, contemporary idiom.

Together with PLH Holding ApS and Henning Mortensen a/s, Årstiderne Arkitekter won the competition to design a new housing development in the attractive area by Lyngsø and Kobskov in 2016.
