Maersk Tower in Copenhagen, Denmark by C.F. Møller Architects

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

Article source: C.F. Møller Architects

The Maersk Tower is a state-of-the-art research building whose innovative architecture creates the optimum framework for world-class health research, making it a landmark in Copenhagen. It aims to contribute positively by linking the University of Copenhagen with the surrounding neighbourhoods and wider city.

The Tower is an extension of Panum, the University of Copenhagen’s Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, and contains both research and teaching facilities, as well as a conference centre with auditoriums and meeting rooms, connected to the latest technology. With its easily identifiable and dynamically curved shape, the 15 storey research tower stands as a sculptural linchpin for the University’s Faculty of Health Sciences, whilst equally forming a visible link between the city and the North Campus.

Les Trois Cochons in Copenhagen, Denmark by København Møbelsnedkeri

Thursday, February 15th, 2018

Article source: København Møbelsnedkeri

Værnedamsvej must be the hippest street in Copenhagen and a very lively street. Linking together two neighborhoods; Vesterbro and Frederiksberg, and with a traffic chaos that have become a part of the charm. In the past known as “The Butchers’ Street” (due to the large number of butchers on the street) but today people go there to eat breakfast, shop and in the evening, dine and drink wine. This building was too a formally butcher’s shop called “Slagter Ryholt” (1907-1999). We have kept some of the atmosphere with the vintage green tiles on the walls, and we still welcome our guests with the custom mosaic tiles and checkerboard showcasing the butchers name “Ryholt”. The French School are placed in the middle of the street and because of that, and the fact that all the cafés, delis and restaurants have a French atmosphere, the street is also known as “Little Paris”. Some of the materials such as the beautiful white Carrara marble tops for the bar, bread station and window seats, together with dark fumed oak tabletops and raw steel along with brass, we combine the classic bistro feel from Paris with excellent craftmanship. KBH Snedkeri is a local company committed to the craft of making handmade furniture. We combine the historic elements in the building with new, long lasting furniture that already had a story to tell, the moment they arrived. Everything is custom made and amazingly looks like it has been there forever. This is what the spirit of Copenhagen is to us.

Park ‘n’ Play
+Parking houses should be an integral part of the city. But how can we challenge the monofunctional use of the conventional parking house? How do we create a functional parking structure, which is also an attractive public space? And how do we create a large parking house that respects the scale, history and future urban culture of the new development area Nordhavn in Copenhagen?

Israels Plads Square in Copenhagen, Denmark by COBE

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

Article source: COBE

The history of Israels Plads (Israel’s Square) reflects the history of Copenhagen’s transformation. This central plaza was once where the city ended in a ring of protective fortifications. As the city gradually extended, the plaza became a vibrant market square – until the 1950’s, when it was turned into a lifeless carpark. The idea with the new Israels Plads is to celebrate the significance and the history of of the site and revitalize it, turning it into a vibrant, diverse plaza for all kinds of people and activities. The surface of the new plaza is elevated above the existing street level – like a new urban carpet. It hovers over the many cars that used to dominate Israels Plads and are now placed in the basement. The cars are literally swept under the new urban carpet. The plaza is programmed as a diverse public space for leisure, culture, activity, and public events. In addition, the new plaza has opened up to the historical landscape next door, H.C. Ørstedparken. A few of the large trees and water elements from the park continue into the plaza, creating a transition between city and nature.
