A team of architects from the Danish design firm Kullegaard have been awarded first place in a competition for the seaport municipality of Holbæk in Denmark. Seeking to form a connection with the surrounding architecture, their proposal for a mixed-use complex, entitled "Holbæk HavneBy," derives its form from the distinction of public and private spaces.

The project is divided into two components to demarcate the public and private programming. In the lower level, retail space comprised of a convenience store, shops, a restaurant, and a market are housed within a heavy concrete base punctuated with glazing. Additional public interaction is encouraged through the inclusion of areas for hosting live workshops.

Above these functions, the private programming - consisting of social housing, condominiums, and rooftop garden terraces - is defined with zinc panels. The installation of these serves as an abstract nod to the region's vernacular style of vertical wooden cladding.

The Holbæk seaport complex spans across several town squares, fitting within the established infrastructure and acting as a habitable link between the city and the waterfront. In addition to the mixed-used new construction, the design proposes the renovation of an existing machine shop to strengthen the connection to the port's history, as well as the transformation of a neighboring plot into a dual-purpose parking lot and weekend farmers market.
