The Rantzausbakke housing development will be sited between the Hansted river valley and Åbjerg woods on the western outskirts of Horsens – offering easy access for residents to lakes, woods and meadows.
Rantzausbakke will be divided into three smaller residential areas – Bakken, Engen and Lunden – each with their own identity in the form of different building structures, road layouts and landscaping features. The three residential areas will be linked by a central green common-like tract of land.
Recreational activities and communities
The common will invite residents to engage in various recreational activities and will include a community building and adjoining outdoor areas. Here, residents can come together for communal dining, activities in the playground, outdoor fitness and gatherings around the bonfire or in the communal vegetable gardens. The entire area will be linked by a network of footpaths and bicycle paths across the common, and which will also provide easy access to the nearby woods, lakes and the rolling meadow landscape.
