Milestone reached in Køge Kyst: Inauguration of the commons in Søndre Havn

We’re excited to announce the official opening of the first commons of Søndre Havn in Køge Kyst.

This is a significant milestone in a journey that began in 2010 when we contributed to the winning development plan for Køge’s former industrial port and railway area, Køge Kyst.

The lush commons characterize the entire Søndre Havn district – Køge Kyst’s first, new neighborhood – and play a central role in the plan’s way of uniting resilience and livability.

With SLA’s landscape and nature design, the commons serve as the central gathering places for the residents, while also handling all rainwater runoff, strengthening the biodiversity, and creating a connection to the public promenade encircling the entire Søndre Havn.

The 1.4 km long promenade will work as a connecter and protector; it creates a close link to the bordering salt meadow, harbor, and beach. Simultaneously the elevated promenade serves as a tidal dike and will protect the high-risk area during future storm surges. Architecturally, the wide promenade is envisioned as the connector to the surrounding nature, sea, and harbor. Along its south-facing edges, there are stairs and recreational spaces where the local residents and visitors can enjoy the sun or access the footpaths of the large salt meadow.
