The town of Albertslund was established in the 1960s on an empty field. The renovation of the central buildings and squares is based on an overall masterplan for the town centre. The masterplan includes an extensive rebuilding and redevelopment of Albertslund shopping plaza, library, cinemas, theatre and flytower as well as a number of public spaces, including the bus station. The new elements interact with the existing architecture in which the robust concrete contrasts with the slight, open teak elements. On the town squares and plazas, the concrete of the buildings interacts with precisely executed paving, integrated signposting and lighting.
The new bus station features copper slag paving and precise cast iron fields as bus refuges. Four tall light towers demarcate the station. They light up the plateau in front of the shops and represent some of the largest light fittings in Northern Europe.
Lately, the station square featuring new facades, paving, plants, integration of street lighting and signposting has been completed. The masterplan comprises a future plan for a sustainable compression of the shopping plaza in an urban context.
