Presenting people who use The SPIRAL every day

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

VISIONARY, INSPIRING, OPEN AND SYNERGETIC!

We proudly present comments from people who use The SPIRAL every day.


Watch Vice Chairman of Kalundborg Fencing Club Jan Sølyst Jensen describe the synergism between the many different user groups of our SPIRAL.


The open design provides amazing opportunities for flexible and intensive use and exchange between a.o. karate, muai thai, boxing and fencing, while the double infrastructure helix, consisting of a central core and a peripheral ‘mountain path’, adds a touch of playfulness to the multiuse quality of the whole.

Yesterday, HM The Queen of Denmark visited The SPIRAL in Kalundborg to experience how collaborative work between citizens, associations, institutions and architects can create visible, innovative and better results.


The SPIRAL, which opened for the public earlier this year, is the result of a co-creation process lead by MUTOPIA, aimed at developing a new typology for a house of movement designed to unite self-organized and organized sports activities into one synergistic whole.

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Archdaily features MUTOPIA’s Village-in-the-Schoolyard for its double social agenda of providing attractive school premises and a social meeting place for the local community.


The urban renewal project, featuring several activity hotspots shaped like gabled houses evocative of the homely appeal of village life, aims at supporting the growth strategy of the Halsnæs Municipality by increasing the attractiveness of the school premises, while in the same time strengthening the qualities of the school grounds as areas for social training, outdoor activities and public life generators.

MUTOPIA’s proposal for a drive-in Bike Station featured in MAGASINET KBH

Friday, October 16th, 2015

What if you could access Copenhagen’s Train Station with your bike on a raised bike platform?


MUTOPIA’s proposal for the transformation of CPH’s Train Station into a drive-in Bike Station is featured in MAGASINET KBH, an independent media with an eye to the city’s architecture and the rapid urban development with impact on the everyday life of the Copenhageners.


The unused roof areas of the existing Shopping Centre, in combination with the generous interior height of the Central Station, provide a unique opportunity for establishing an independent concourse level for bike commuters inside the very station hall.


The new bike concourse level provides efficient access combined with weather protection and 4.000 bike parking places close to the train platforms. In the same time, it adds to the existing 2.200m2 shopping facilities 3.250m2 expanded services, retail and well located facilities aimed at providing a high quality passenger experience for bike commuters.


The transformation of the Central Station into a multi-modal train&bike hub creates a new symbiosis between bike and train aimed at encouraging bike commuting as an efficient and appealing solution to the massive traffic increase in Copenhagen.
