Cultural center (Kulturhus), care home De Litserborg
For the village of Den Dungen, we have designed, next to the church, a cultural center together with the municipality. The cultural center is organized and designed according to the Danish Kulturhus concept; A multipurpose community building, managed, programmed and maintained in collectivity, where the influence of users is very important for the success of the concept. It is a facility in which to meet, share and collaborate, create added value for the entire community.
The Litserborg is located in the center of Den Dungen, it is placed so that the view of the church has been restored. The triangular square that is created in this way adds a quality public space to the village and also gives Den Dungen now a heart. The square is multifunctional, it can be used for the weekly market, terraces and festivities.
There are 40 spacious apartments located, all of which face the new market and the church. Care for residents, if needed, is available on demand. The space around the building is public. At the back are four group small-scale living facilities, each for seven residents. A series of courtyards, plazas and gardens give this area an intimate and more private character.
