People living together in diverse communities make the most vibrant and attractive neighborhoods when built on social inclusion and interaction. Through intergenerational relations, we can nourish each other and unfold the different stages of life in a positive and inclusive manner. Nord works with this under the title and concept ‘Ideal Neighborhoods’. They are planned and designed to have a beneficial impact on both social relations, healthcare, environment and economy.
Synergies unfold between differences in a city which can multiply social vitality, urban identity and cultural character through cross fertilization and mixing functions. A mixed and site-specific Ideal Neighborhood creates potential for healthy living where public meets private, and dwellings meets institutions based on varied partnerships within city development.
Case, Co-Existence Village: Healthy and active environments are not just a question of building attractive housing areas, but also a way to improve on some of the crisis in welfare and society.
Case, Community for Life: Intergenerational communities is a strategic and human generator to create long-lasting and mixed neighborhoods scaled to the specific project and site.
Case, Straume New Urban Centre: We create strategic city development for a sustainable future. We are bridging generations, people, culture and learning hubs to evoke interaction and synergies.
We create site-specific environments by reinforcing the historic traces or reinterprete characterics into contemporary living areas.
