Carlsberg Spaces Copenhagen
Urban spaces at Carlsberg in Copenhagen
Carlsberg breweries have moved their production from the historic site in central Copenhagen. The area has been opened up for urban development.
The focus is on attracting urban life prior to the development of new buildings and infrastructure.
3 urban spaces at Carlsberg close to Vesterbro. 2 are finished TAP E Plads + Boblepladsen, the 3rd NY TAP PLADS will open later this year
Developed in cooperation between primus arkitekter and parkourorganisation STREETMOVEMENT the project takes an experimental approach to the development of urban spaces. By thinking the urban furniture as a landscape it creates an informal space that doesn´t dictate the use of it. 30 by 30cm solid oak beams in length up to 5 meters make up the ondulated landscape. Various familiar situations are integrated, but at the same time the structures transcends familiarity and offers a completely open structure that invites social initiatives.

Carlsberg – our city : summary below
Carlsberg – our city, Copenhagen, Denmark
Competition won in 2007 by Entasis for a new town in Copenhagen
The New Carlsberg City District, a 33 ha site
Carlsberg – our city – our spaces
In 2007 from 221 entries Entasis won the international competition on the development of Carlsberg’s old industrial plot in Valby/Copenhagen.
Carlsberg – our city is a network of public spaces that offer themselves to users in the form of gardens, squares, axes, streets, alleys, passages and, last but not least a number of privately owned but publicly accessible buildings. It is an ambition that so many of the existing buildings and all of the existing outdoor space should open up to public life.
Carlsberg our city, therefore, means space rather than building.
As a natural consequence of this, the city’s room to find an architectural spirit before the buildings can be built. 12 major urban spaces at Carlsberg have been given a functional and aesthetic code. In view of the codes the urban spaces must find their natural form. An urban space is essential for the nearby buildings and help to encode architectural and functional form.
