Ryktborsten is our idea of high quality living in harmony with the green surroundings - a flexible living environment where people want to and can live for life.

For many older people, moving is a big step and leaving the area where they feel at home can be particularly difficult. There is therefore a need to plan for housing suitable for an ageing population in all urban areas.

In Ryktborsten, we test a new way of thinking about flexible housing. It is not only aimed at the elderly, but also at families with children, for example. It is possible to vary the size of your home over time, so you can stay in the same neighborhood even when your life conditions and circumstances change.

There are common outdoor environments and areas for cultivation and movement. Environments that encourage interaction and activities between children and the elderly in the form of, for example, a storytelling area created in the garden. The wooden buildings lead into a common courtyard that becomes a natural meeting place.
