Museum for Danish Rock Music, Folk Music School with student housing, office and conference facilites, communal housing and regeneration masterplan
Rockmagneten is located between Roskilde city centre and the grounds of the annual rock festival: Roskilde Festival. The brief required the preservation of the old industrial halls of the former Unicon concrete factory, as well as the retention of its informal character currently used by artists, skaters and musicians. The aim of the design is to maintain a contrast between old and new by preserving the existing fabric as much as possible and positioning the new volumes above the existing halls. Consequently, the existing building fabric and creative, informal character is retained, with free and unprogrammed public spaces taking pride of place over formal cultural facilities.
