C.F. Møller win 200,000 sq m University facility design contract 

C. F. Møller Architects, in collaboration with SLA Landscape Architects and engineers Alectia, have been appointed as master planners for a new 200,000 sq m Knowledge and Research Park as well as the Portal Zone at the University of Odense.

Property Developers Freja A/S has chosen C. F. Møller Architects' proposal as the result of a design competition, involving five other architectural teams. A unanimous jury selected our scheme as the solution that best fulfils the vision for a new urban Science Park.

The project is highlighted for its consequent sustainable approach, based on the concept of bringing together the 100,000 sq m research and science facilities with the additional mix-use of 100,000 sq m public functions, dwellings, student housing, institutions and hotel in a dense urban environment. The concept provides straightforward sustainability rewards, including compact buildings, short services routings, minimal infrastructure, minimal land-use and a good urban micro-climate. It also has great potential for integrating scientific research with the surrounding community. It is here that school children, senior citizens and businesses will be able to meet, and be inspired by, the research that forms the basis for Denmark's future as a Knowledge Society. The proposal creates a true urban setting, with small and large public spaces where all extrovert activities are located at ground floor level.

The first phase of 75,000 sq m is to be completed by 2020. The planning procedures are to be completed by mid 2010.
