18 January 2021 – Deadline for receipt of projects and applications for participation
A fee of DKK 125,000 (USD20,000 approx.) will be paid excl. VAT to the pre-qualified participants who submit a conditional competition proposal. 

Proposals must be given for new construction of a new church of gross approx. 1 347 m2 church incl. connecting corridor, chapel, basement and tower. Disposition and layout of the proposal is expected to be based on the wishes described in the competition program incl. the 2 main points of the vision. Højvangen Church, the Church Center and the cemetery and associated landscape must be part of an overall elegant whole in interaction with the surrounding context. There must be openness from the church to the surroundings, but also from the surroundings into the church.

– the church must signal kindness and friendliness with a focus on calm, silence and contemplation. We want a church which, based on a theological way of thinking, in its expression and scale invites equality, openness and community.

– a church where the congregation can see each other during church actions, and where inclusion is a basic design parameter.

The project competition, and subsequent tender with negotiation, is carried out with a view to entering into a total consultant contract with the winner for the design and realization of Højvangen Church.
