  • Nature is an integrated part of Vinge. The city is built around a new train station, centrally located in a green wedge that connects the city across the tracks. Rooted in state-of-the-art research on microclimate and environment, the design of Vinge is based on a planning scheme in which building volumes are higher and denser around the station, and lower and more scattered on the outskirts of the city. This makes Vinge a healthy and pleasant place to live and work. The broad architectural vocabulary covers residences, institutions, and workplaces. While developed to create a diverse selection of green recreational spaces, the landscape design also serves as a natural resource to manage rainwater.
