Description


Aarhus, Denmark, 2007

This vivid harbour front development consists of mixed-use residential properties (300 owner occupied and 100 rental), a new harbour promenade, cafes, restaurants, a skybar and open squares. The district will be free of cars while the residential properties will consist of 270 flats and 30 terraced houses. The tower, at a height of 140 metres, will be the tallest building in Denmark. The residences will have no rear-sides, but instead a facade treatment is applied from every viewpoint, the characteristic patterns of which are based on the reflections of light in water. It is about living the view. The architecture has been developed in close collaboration between UNStudio in Amsterdam, 3XN in Aarhus and the urban environment experts Gehl Architects. UNStudio
