Text description provided by the architects. Competing usage patterns had resulted in a counterintuitive spatial structure in the Danish small town of Aabenraa. In the course of the comprehensive redesign, Topotek 1 together with ADEPT developed a vibrant new topology in which the diverse dimensions of contemporary urban life can interact in a dynamic way, respecting the heterogeneous character of public space and activity.

Referencing the existing materials and colour palette, each central public plaza of Aabenraa was redesigned on a single ground plane and characterised with a clear geometric and modern design. This creates a shared space for cars, cyclists, and pedestrians. The main plaza now offers several oversized umbrellas and flexible furniture, making it usable for any kind of event.

A circular wooden bench that was specially designed for this space invites visitors to linger and rest. Overall, the concept for the redesign of Aabenraa Midtby encompasses a consequent yet unconventional approach towards current site conditions, especially regarding the used materials and elements that establish a legible and accessible topology.
