Bystrædet is the most important urban space, that must tie the city center together, and support the area’s life and well-being. Emphasis is placed on the fact that the city district is experienced as a differentiated but nevertheless continuous course, which is composed of narrower paths and openings, that create space structures. Bystrædet binds the area together, both internally and with the city’s surrounding hubs – the station square in the north and Ballerup Boulevard in the south.
The pavement on the city square must have its own character, which supports the city-town’s status as the connecting element in the city center. A series of elliptical plant beds are designed as high beds, so that the edge can be used as a seat. The planting in the high beds appears lush with a mixture of multi-stemmed trees, smaller shrubs and a dense bottom cover, which in species selection ensures a variety all year round.
