Cirkelbroen celebrates pedestrians. It reflects the daily life and intimacy that you find around the canal in the Christianshavn neighbourhood, its houseboats and sailing boats, the unique life on the ramparts. Copenhagen’s harbour was once a centre of maritime activity, and Cirkelbroen is a testimony to that history.

Nøjkærhus is located in the highland of Jutland, near Silkeborg, Denmark. Extensive forests, lakes, heath and many smaller grassland areas characterize the landscape.

This project is for a singlefamily house at village of Varpelev in the southeast part of Zealand, Denmark.
The brief was to design a 150 m2 home for a family of four persons. The overall main idea, very early in the sketching phase, was to reinterpret the traditional Danish white painted three parted farmhouses from the 18th century which are very common in the surrounding landscape of Varpelev.

All too often modern cities are divided up into single use zones like housing or education, or industry. Yet the most successful older communities throughout the world are almost all mixed uses. In addition, the way we move and interact in modern thinking is divided up into a kind of traffic apartheid – walking, cycling, driving.

Bridges are places that offer new perspectives on the city, spectacular views of the water that reveal the cityscape. The bridges are elements that are part of the urban landscape in a natural way.
Through their simplicities, they form a contrast with the monumental buildings. The bridges designated for pedestrians and cyclists offer a maximum of transparency and lightness.
