The Trekroner Residential Housing Project is part of a large new residential development outside the City of Roskilde immediately adjacent to Roskilde University. In contrast to the large open spaces of the Trekroner development, the two new buildings move individually to create intimate, wind protected, green spaces between them. Parking for the 38 housing units is placed on the northernmost part of the site, leaving the rest of the area for pedestrians and recreational use.

The complex is characterized by a lightness found in the crispness of the façade cladding, the intricately patterned individual staircases, the white-blossomed cherry trees, and white rose plantings that run throughout the landscape. The building’s main construction is of prefab concrete clad in white composite panels, and stainless steel rods on the façade support climbing white clematis vines. All floors are pine and windows and doors are of white aluminium and wood. The landscape consists of black asphalt paving with white hardware, wooden terraces, white cherry trees and low growing white roses.

Each housing unit can be individually accessed from the ground and most are staggered diagonally over an adjacent unit to ensure flexibility in use and to provide a larger and more varied spatiality than a traditional duplex. Units on ground level have a small private garden abutting the common green space, while duplex units have large balconies also facing this space. The ceiling height of each ground level unit is different due to the site’s changing topography, and each unit’s living space is directly connected to its secondary rooms through a double-high section.
