Budget: DDK 3 mio.
Year: 2011-2013

Copenhagen Municipality have constructed 14 new parks and Litauens Plads is number two in the series. The park consists of a green area to relax and stay, and a red sports department for activity with the possibility of both street basketball, football, foosball and table tennis. Moreover, a market place has been established and is used for markets, performances and a café. Many of the old trees in the park did not thrive, and therefore quite a few new trees have been planted – both tall and light and open but also smaller, flowering trees. The Danish artist Armsrock has decorated the space with a large light installation. Danish Energy Management & Esbensen have contributed to make the park optimal for sun, shade, daylight and wind as well as projecting energy efficient lighting.

The intention is to create a creative area of water behind the Hotel Merriot and Nykredit. The two waves that are linked by paths, provides two open pools, which are intended to be used by kayaking. The wide areas were intended for other recreational activities, plays, etc. At the area of the upper deck there will be placed containers for rent example for cafes and small shops. Danish Energy Management & Esbensen has been involved in the design of lighting. The purpose of the lighting has been to provide safe routes across the two waves. This while the architecture at the same time is emphasized the evening. One of the major challenges was to avoid too much light in the water, taking all attention from the plant architecture and interfaces.
