Tingstedet 58-69

The work Tingstedet 58-69 is the culmination of numerous visits (and a single intervention) to the same site over a period of almost two years. Tingstedet 58-69 is a small street with two detached villas, two terraced houses with four homes each, as well as service buildings. They were built as part of the Sjælsmark barracks - in North Zealand, Denmark - in response to the Cold War, designed by the architect K. Jensen-Gaard between 1952-1954 and functioned as service housing. Now abandoned, but worthy of preservation for it’s architectural value the site is caught in a state of in-between.
