Henning Larsen Architects, in collaboration with an international team consisting of Tredje Natur, MOE and Railway Procurement Agency, has won Frederikssund municipality’s architecture competition to design a regional train station and new quarter in the future town of Vinge. While primarily serving to connect Vinge to the regional public transit system, the undulating, circular urban hub is designed to prevent the railway from dividing the town in two halves. 

“The proposal best connects the train station, nature and town structure as one united whole,” lauded the selection committee regarding Henning Larsen’s winning scheme.

“We are very happy to be part of the first steps of the development of Vinge by designing the train station and the urban space surrounding it. It is a symbolic strong beginning of a town development. Simply put, our idea is to create an integrated town space that connects the movements of the town and the landscape. In Vinge, the natural landscape becomes part of the town and you will be able to live in the countryside within the town,” explains Niels Edeltoft, architect and project manager at Henning Larsen Architects.

Henning Larsen Architects has also created the 370-hectare overall masterplan for the town of Vinge: “The fundamental idea for Vinge is to develop a new town where natural elements are not simply added at the end, but integrated from the beginning of the town’s development. The new Regional train station is an example of this holistic approach.”

The train station in Vinge is expected to be completed in 2017.
