PLH was prequalified for the competition for a new city district on the former Carlsberg site, in a team with four other architectural firms. Carlsberg City District is a dense and complex urban area that gathers many different functions in one place. Housing, commercial space, library, plazas, squares, parks, and local college UCC, are to exist side by side to create a neighbourhood characterized by diversity, history and vibe.
UCC’s lobby is designed as a large gallery, spanning the building mass to connect the district’s two main squares. A classic hierarchy governs the functional flow with the main common features such as gym, auditorium and library located more prominently, while the flexible learning environments are grouped together in academic faculties, each with its own identity.
