DSB train workshop in Næstved, Landscape plan
Gottlieb Paludan Architects has been responsible for the landscape work and design of buildings for the establishment of a new DSB workshop in Næstved. The location, integration and design of the overall facility must take into account protected nature and wildlife, a protected landscape and other landscape designations in the area.
The new DSB workshop is located in an open and relatively flat landscape consisting of a undisturbed and open agricultural landscape with long, valuable views to and from the protected Mogenstrup Ås, which forms the northern border of the project area and parts of the new access areas. The area is linked to Fladsågård estate and includes a protected bog, a protected forest and protected water streams. The landscape is characterized by the relatively flat open agricultural landscape with Mogenstrup Ås, which rises to the north, as a distinctive terrain form with forest and open grassland areas. The project area is designated as a nature conservation area and part of Grønt Danmarkskort, the green Denmark map, which aims to create coherent nature networks. The area is also covered by the designations "Landscape worthy of preservation" and "National geological area of interest" and affected by an open protection line and a low-lying area designated for wetland restoration.
The landscape treatment includes the entire project area and must fulfill three main tasks:
- Contribute to the most harmonious integration of the workshop facility in a vulnerable and valuable landscape.
- Contribute to the consideration of visual conditions, nature and wildlife.
- Support scoring criteria in relation to DGNB certification. Including creating quality in the outdoor areas, increasing biodiversity, preserving existing trees and creating soil balance.
