The site is located between Roskilde city centre and the Festival grounds of the annual rock festival. The brief demanded preserving the halls of the former concrete factory Unicon and the informal character of the site which is 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. In addition to this, their was the goal of retaining the informal activities taken place there already. The masterplan defines areas for future buildings and temporary pavilions around a large event plaza connecting the halls and the Rockmagneten with the main street.
The old factory buildings will be newly insulated and opened up to daylight with large expanses of glazing, while retaining their industrial character. Wide open spaces inside the halls will then be interconnected and partly filled with elements of the Rockmagneten's public program, with the rest left as informal, undefined or ´free space´space where temporary activities, events, exhibitions or even spontaneous creativity can take place. The halls function as the heart of the creative hub for the Musicon area.
