LINK arkitektur has recently begun work on strategic holistic planning in connection with extensive renovations, modernisation and new construction in Præstevangen, Dept. 1 under the auspices of Boligforeningen Århus Omegn.
The department comprises a total of 667 homes with living spaces ranging from 38 to 105 m² and a small shopping plaza with approximately five shop units. The department’s status as a desirable residential area is to be reaffirmed, with the spotlight on types of homes, home interiors, neighbourhood provision, accessibility and architectural quality.
The master plan takes as its starting point a current residential programme working with dwelling, the facades, local facilities and the Præstevangen area as a whole. The residential programme is running in parallel with project development and serves as an integrated design process, giving local residents a great deal of say in the renovation and development of Præstevangen.
The master plan seeks to ensure that the area will remain an attractive, high-quality, integral part of the Aarhus suburb Viby.
