    New Build

In a remarkable transformation, the Sommerlyst development on Geislersgade in Amager has revitalized a once weary landscape. The previously tired and dilapidated apartment blocks have undergone a vibrant rebirth as social housing, illustrating the profound impact that thoughtful architectural revitalization can have on both a structure and its surrounding community.

A Variety of Housing

The development comprises a total of 28 new family homes ranging between 72 and 114 m², offering a diverse range of housing options. The residences include two- and three-story terraced houses with private front gardens, single-story apartments, and penthouses located at the top, featuring their own roof terrace.

Hi Neighbour!

The interconnected apartments are navigated through a system of staggered roof terraces and balconies, contributing to the creation of a dynamic courtyard with numerous seating areas. From this courtyard side, residents enjoy views of and access to Fællesgården, a sizable green courtyard. The ground floor also houses two retail spaces, and an underground parking garage adds to the overall convenience of the development.
