In a team with COWI and Atelier Lorentzen Langkilde PLH Arkitekter has been chosen to participate in the competition of a new town hall building in Høje Taastrup C. The new town hall will be located between City2 and Høje Taastrup station – and is to kickstart an ambitious development of the area around City 2 in the central part of the city of Høje-Taastrup. A development that is to create a new and more lively district to attract new residents and companies.
'The town hall of the future'
The new town hall, located centrally in the new district, is to be a 'town hall of the future’ – a living multifunctional house that is open, flexible and accessible for the residents of the city, collaborators and employees. After office hours the town hall is to be available and open for different activities in order to activate the new district.
