A CIRCLE OF FOURTEEN VARIATIONS in Copenhagen, Denmark by SHJWORKS Architectural

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Article source: SHJWORKS Architectural

This project addresses the theme of unique variation and belonging to a community. A community which is both imaginary and definite.Imaginary because each of the fourteen structures creates the illusion of a circle. And definite because the opening of each structure is oriented towards the same physical point.

Article source: JDS Architects

Kalvebod Brygge is situated opposite the popular Copenhagen summer hang out, Islands Brygge. Kalvebod Brygge has the potential to be Islands Brygge’s more urban counterpart but has, until now, been synonymous with a desolated office address devoid of life and public activities.

The Cliff in Copenhagen, Denmark by Mangor & Nagel ARKITEKTFIRMA

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

Article source: Mangor & Nagel ARKITEKTFIRMA

Introduction

”The Cliff” is an indoor public swimming bath in the Danish region Stevns. The architecture of the building is inspired by the cliffs of Stevns, Northern Europe’s most important geological locality. It is based on the transition between the landscape and the village, and the building rises steadily and proudly from the landscape in the east towards the buildings in the west. At the top end of the sloped roof, the white wall abruptly finishes the sculpture, and the furrowed front of the building and the window openings together illustrate how the facade is inspired by the chalk layers of the natural cliffs. A cut in the facade opens up the building to the landscape and allows the light to flood into it, while the white plaster facade fits the local white washed buildings.

4B in Copenhagen, Denmark by Holscher Arkitekter

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Article source: Holscher Arkitekter

In the centre of Copenhagen, close to Nyboder, Holscher Arkitekter has designed and constructed a residential project on a very narrow site of seven meters. The structure is unusual in its form, in its detailing and in its relation to the city.

The project 4B consists of a slim structure of glass, a plaster gable and a light cladding of Tombac. From the ground to the fourth floor the building is facing north and south. The structure is extruded from the street to the courtyard taking a cue in height from the tall adjacent red brick house and forming a white plaster wall against the 3 storey neighboring house.
