FORMER DOCKLANDS In the northern part of the city centre, on the former docklands of 'Amerikaplads', a diverse structure of living and working will be created, based on plans by West 8. Different building blocks and offices complement the existing structure of buildings. The ferries to other Scandinavian countries depart from a new passengers terminal, designed by 3 X Nielsen.

Not far from the inner city area, on the left and right side of the inland waterways, different developments are taking place at this very moment. Islands Brygge is a new district which is connected with the city centre by a shore park. Especially the conversion of two grain silos, dubbed Frosilos and turned into apartments by MVRDV, is noteworthy. A pedestrian bridge interlinks the smaller development of Havneholmen where high-end housing is realised.

As a southern final piece of the development alongside the water the harbour island Slusehomen has become a city quarter with closed building blocks. Dutch architect Sjoerd Soeters was asked to design an urban plan like he did for the Amsterdam Java-eiland in the 1990s. The blocks are structured by a grid of new canals. The houses and facades of each block are, exactly like in Amsterdam, designed by different (local) architects as to ensure the liveliness of the new development.

We organise architecture guided tours and custom made study trips in Copenhagen. For more information and a free price offer we invite you to contact us.
