Denmark’s Solar-Powered Herstedlund Center is a Vibrant Community Hub
Dorte Mandrop Arkitekter Architects designed the project with sustainability in mind, and it meets Tier 2 Energy standards. The center’s green building strategies include solar panels, passive cooling systems, and thermo-active decks for energy-efficient heating. In addition, the building collects rainwater for flushing toilets and motion-controlled lights ensure efficient use of electricity by the building’s occupants.
The interior of the building is flexible enough to change and grow with the surrounding community, and it can be used around the clock for activities such as teaching, dancing, sports, yoga, and barbeques. The first floor is dedicated to performances, while the second floor contains a multipurpose/multi-functional classroom space. The third floor features an open roof and a fenced-in terrace that provides safety during recreational activities.
