The Green Factory is an ambitious project that adds a new green landmark site in Aarhus and, at the same time, creates a platform for sustainable synergies with three focus points: innovative environmental measures, social initiatives, and circular economy.
Our proposal reaches out to people with ambitions for the city and invites them into a green community that cultivates social implication. The Green Factory brings together housing and small businesses by collecting creative industries in one green business cluster that creates products and experiences for the benefit of the residents of the neighborhood and the rest of Aarhus.
A hub of green entrepreneurs will be created by transforming the old factory and repurposing it, making it the centerpiece for the development of the whole block. It’s here that users will get unique experiences and meet in a creative environment that puts Aarhus on the map.
