Lundehaven Care Centre
Enclosed by Lundehaven Nursing Home and Residences for the Elderly, one finds this rectangular green courtyard with several interesting features: The paving consists of a continous layer of tiles only interrupted by large flower beds covered with vigorous perennials. Planting is chosen to also look interesting in winter-time. A central element in the courtyard are a number of rectangular granite troughs equipped with nozzles of bronze. They do not operate at the same time or at regular intervals but completely at random, thus adding a moment of surprise and pleasant sounds of rippling water to the courtyard. This is a collaborative project with Steen Høyer and Lundgaard & Tranberg Architects AS.
