Emerging Danish dockland architecture in Copenhagen:
South Docks / Sydhavnen
Kongens Enghave (“King’s Meadow Garden”), also known as Sydhavnen (“South Harbour”), is a small waterfront district (far inland from the sea) in southern Copenhagen. The area has historically been one of the poorest neighbourhoods in Copenhagen, dissected by major transport corridors and characterized by social problems as well as industry along the harbour-front.
Since around 2000 the area has undergone a fairly major transformation. While the district in general remains a relatively poor neighbourhood with social challenges, the harbour-front areas of Sluseholmen and Teglholmen have undergone massive redevelopment into new residential neighbourhoods which have been praised for their architecture. A significant cluster of IT and telecommunications companies have also emerged in the area.
