Fælledby is a sustainable housing scheme designed by Henning Larsen that will be constructed entirely out of timber and “place nature at its core”.

Set to be built on a former junkyard on the outskirts of Copenhagen, Denmark, the low-rise development will accommodate 7,000 residents and become the capital’s first all timber neighbourhood.

It has been designed by Henning Larsen in collaboration with engineers and biologists at MOE to demonstrate how modern housing can satisfy the needs of people, animals and nature simultaneously.

Fælledby是亨寧·拉森(Henning Larsen)設計的可持續住房計劃,將完全用木材建造,“以自然為核心”。


它是由Henning Larsen與教育部的工程師和生物學家合作設計的,旨在展示現代住房如何同時滿足人類,動物和自然的需求。

“Deciding to build in the natural landscape around Fælledby comes with a commitment to balance people with nature,” explained Signe Kongebro, partner at Henning Larsen.

“Specifically, this means that our new district will be Copenhagen’s first built fully in wood, and incorporating natural habitats that encourage richer growth for plants and animals,” he continued.

“With the rural village as an archetype, we’re creating a city where biodiversity and active recreation define a sustainable pact between people and nature.”

Henning Larsen的合夥人Signe Kongebro解釋說:“決定在Fælledby周圍的自然景觀中建房,就是要實現人與自然之間的平衡。”



The 18-hectare Fælledby development was the winning proposal in a national design competition held by real estate company By & Havn.

Once complete, it will be divided into three individual neighbourhoods. This layout is intended to provide residents with a “more intimate, small-scale sense of community”.

Visually, Fælledby merges the aesthetic of Danish urban vernacular with rural typologies in a bid to complement its city surroundings while also evoking a bucolic village.

Every dwelling will be constructed entirely from timber with the aim of reducing the carbon footprint of the development.


完成後,它將分為三個獨立的社區。 這種佈局旨在為居民提供“更親密,更小規模的社區意識”。



Alongside the housing, 40 per cent of the Fælledby will be dedicated to landscaping.

This includes swathes of greenery that will weave in between the three villages to encourage plants and wildlife to inhabit the site.

The scheme will be complete with detailing hp[ed to invite biodiversity, including nests for birds and bats built into the facades of the homes and community gardens to attract butterflies.




At the centre of each of Fælledby’s three neighbourhoods, Henning Larsen will also incorporate ponds to offer homes for frogs and salamanders.

“Like the traditional rural village, the Fælledby masterplan stands for itself within an open natural landscape. This gives an opportunity to create a setting that is uniquely sensitive to sustainability and natural priorities,” concluded Kongebro.

“We see a potential to build a new city that speaks to the sensibilities of younger generations, to create a home for people seeking a solution on how to live in better harmony with nature. For us, Fælledby is a proof of concept that this can indeed be done.”

在費勒比(Fælledby)三個街區的中心,亨寧·拉森(Henning Larsen)還將合併池塘,為青蛙和sal提供房屋。

“就像傳統的鄉村一樣,Fælledby總體規劃在開放的自然景觀中代表自己。這為創造一個對可持續性和自然優先事項特別敏感的環境提供了機會,” Kongebro總結道。

“我們看到了建立一座新城市的潛力,可以說服年輕一代,為尋求解決方案的人們創造一個家,以更好地與自然和諧相處。對我們而言,費勒比證明了這一點 確實做到了。”

While no time frame has been disclosed for the construction of Fælledby, it will developed by Henning Larsen in phases to “allow the landscape to be organically integrated in the site”.

Henning Larsen is the eponymous studio of Danish architect Henning Larsen, founded in Copenhagen 1959. The practice, which is now headed by Mette Kynne Frandsen and Louis Becker, was recently awarded the European Prize for Architecture 2019.

Other recently projects by the studio include a proposal for an extension to Paris’ largest opera house, rollercoaster-like housing in Denmark and a sewage works topped with a park.

雖然尚未透露建造Fælledby的時間表,但Henning Larsen將分階段進行開發,以“將景觀有機地整合到場地中”。

Henning Larsen是丹麥建築師Henning Larsen的同名工作室,成立於1959年的哥本哈根。現在由Mette Kynne Frandsen和Louis Becker領導的事務所最近獲得了2019年歐洲建築獎。
