Musicon

Central in the city of Roskilde’s new creative part of town, SLA has transformed a former post-industrial landscape into a diverse and versatile urban space. The project bases on the area’s unique identity and expresses it in the use of materials, reproduction of historical motifs in the pavement and reutilization of historical elements. A patchwork of surfaces combined with trees and vegetation adds human scale, creates fully accessibility and closely reconnects the site.  Thus, the project activates the area’s history and previous use in a new and contemporary design while developing a vibrant cultural heritage site that attracts residents and visitors across ages.
