Generationernes Frederiksberg will reinvigorate a complete urban block along the football pitches at K.B. sports arena in Frederiksberg. A new nursing home set around a number of pocket squares will function as a generator for urban life and encourage meetings between generations.

The buildings are designed as residential blocks with active facades to avoid the look of a conventional care centre. A new clubhouse for Frederiksberg Boldklub is also integrated into the block. A number of public facilities are open throughout the day, ensuring diverse urban life and community feel.

Elderly and young share everyday life

The project is located on the border between the old and the new town. Inspired by the beautiful historic Frederiksberg buildings and elegant green open spaces, the new quarter has a introduces a modern twist with a more dynamic urban design that can attract many different users. Ingeborggården care centre's vision is to encourage an active urban life style for their residents.

From a distance, Generationernes Frederiksberg is perceived as a unified building, and up close as a nuanced and vibrant city quarter. A new sports lane ensures equal access for everyone - cyclists and pedestrians, the area's school children, the football club's many users, playful toddlers, families and senior citizens.

Well connected and future proof

In total, the project includes new nursing home for 200 residents, well connected to local urban spaces with training opportunities, a café, and new facilities for Frederiksberg Football Club.

The building is designed and constructed in accordance with DGNB Silver with a focus on dual use, climate strategies, various user experiences and simple, timeless and robust architecture.
