Ringsted Barracks, Denmark
In 2006, Ringsted Municipality took it upon themselves to explore the living quarters for families in the future. Eight Danish architects, including Dorte Mandrup, were given the opportunity to design their best bid for a future friendly home on the old military area around Ringsted Barracks as part of the Living 2006+ exhibition. In this tiny village of architect-designed houses, Dorte Mandrup made a contribution of 7 townhouses with a warm reddish-brown veneer facade.Read more ↓
Ringsted Barracks consists of 7 townhouses located in 2 rows. The top floors are offset from the ground floors providing a functional distribution in the home and a double height space in the relatively small residences.
Between the houses are semi-private outdoor spaces, designed for both play and stay, enabling informal meetings to occur regularly among residents.
