The 70,000 m2 development on the site of a former abattoir is located on a 34,000 m2 site adjacent to the Horsens railway station and will include recreational spaces, office development and new retail facilities.

shla’s masterplan received particular praise for its dynamic design which will create a sense of cohesion between the city’s existing urban identity and the new retail and recreational areas.

Kim Holst Jensen, project director, from shla, said: “the practice’s design will create a vibrant cultural and commercial hub for the city. The housing blocks, the green areas, the squares and the railway form a border between the centre and the park and together create a dynamic civic scale.”
