In 2013, BECHT together with Nordic Concept and Wsp Sweden, completed a first identity strategy for the entire region of Trelleborg. Next step in 2015 was to make a masterplan for a transformation of an industry left over area in center of the city.
The masterplan occupies a unique site in the city, not far from the expanse of the waterfront and a new city district in west.
The goal of the project was to maximise urban and architectural diversity as well as spatial flexibility, and the realization of a pedestrian-friendly zone. That allows a concentration of urban density whilst maintaining flexible space for housing, office, commercial or cultural programs.
The masterplan offers a series of ‘urban rules’ as guidance. Each program should be present in all phases to create a balanced development from the beginning.
