The masterstroke of the housing scheme of 236 social and private apartments in Copenhagen’s regeneration area of Havneholmen is the way in which the architects have challenged the masterplan which limited access to the water for both residents and visitors. By detaching a free standing tower element from each C-shaped block and pulling it out to the water’s edge they created a public footpath which diverts around the tower through the beautifully landscaped courtyards of the new housing.

This scheme produces extraordinarily spacious, light-filled apartments – every one with two or three exterior facades and access to at least two balconies. This is exemplary housing architecture which makes you realise why the Danish get one of the highest happiness rankings in the world.
