Development with maritime roots
Plans and strategies for the good life by the harbor
The harbor of Svendborg is full of character from its heritage as a commercial port and ship building port for many centuries.
The harbor has been has been identified by the town council as the key area for the transformation of Svendborg to attract new businesses as well as new inhabitants in the former sailors town.
Vandkunsten Architects were asked to put together a development plan for the strategic transformation of Svendborg Harbor.
The development plan includes a physical plan, a plan in stages, and specific strategies for housing, landscape, urban development, business, urban life, and urban spaces, climate adaptation, sustainability, and the maritime cultural heritage.
The plan includes structures built on stilts and plinths in anticipation of the risk of flooding.
The plan was approved by the city council in 2014 and under development in the coming decades.
