A New Gateway to Copenhagen

Beauvaisgrunden embraces a groundbreaking urban development at the forefront of Copenhagen. Through a comprehensive design strategy, we have effectively tackled challenges spanning from noise and pollution to wind and climate protection. As a testament to the successful completion of this endeavor, three out of the five towers now proudly stand tall, presenting 69 new units of social housing.

These residences are designed as social housing but transcend the ordinary. The development represents a remarkable vision for sustainable urban living, employing a holistic and experiential design approach that addresses noise, pollution, wind, and climate protection, all while emphasizing community and innovation.

The pentagonal shape of the towers offers multiple practical advantages, enhancing both housing quality and climate design within the structure.

Urban nature and housing

Urban nature and housing seamlessly integrate into a cohesive, space-enhancing composition at every scale, enriching both individual homes and the entire neighborhood.

Beauvaisgrunden's untamed, naturally evolving breathing space on the city's periphery serves as a robust foundation for transforming the site into a dynamic residential and commercial district. Our proposal intricately weaves together landscape and architecture in a unified approach, ensuring a harmonious coexistence between the built environment and the surrounding natural elements.

The architectural design seamlessly extends downward into the surrounding landscape, while the natural environment gracefully infiltrates the built structures.

Green hills and embankments within a vibrant climate park form the backdrop for a novel urban hierarchy, characterized by layered zoning encompassing private, semi-private, and public spaces. This arrangement creates a visually cohesive environment, offering a unique and harmonious urban experience.

Towards a Sustainable Future

The residences, designed for optimal views and abundant natural light, provide an exceptional backdrop for urban living and community engagement. This contributes to a sustainable image that resonates with the pride of Copenhagen residents.

Key elements such as panoramic views, sunlight, lush green spaces, innovative rainwater management, an efficient building envelope, noise reduction strategies, and the use of robust materials collectively foster a 'green' and inviting living climate within the development.
