Søndermarken Vejle

The suburb Søndermarken, 4 km south of Vejle, like so many other suburbs is characterized by segregation, large buffer zones and areas with poor image. To solve these problems SLA proposes to tie Søndermarken actively together with the ‘Eastern Metropolis' of Jutland, integrating the suburb into a wider regional context. At the same time the exceptional nature of Eastern Jutland must be made more accessible. To create this unity, and to enhance the surrounding nature’s presence in Søndermarken, six public commons are created to tie the two river valleys together across the district.
