3XN. Nordhavnen Residences. Copenhagen. Denmark

The Nordhavnen residences respond to demands of individuality and identity. The circular floor plan buildings in a free site plan have replaced the traditional urban grid, while maintaining, even optimising, density. Circular buildings without corners provide for better views and more daylight; wind turbulence is avoided by the aerodynamic design; and they have an optimum balance between floor area and facade, meaning high energy efficiency. The image of a ‘pile of plates’ is achieved by using balcony additions to each floor –with varied positions. The balconies are prefab elements, all alike. One result is the benefits of being able to enjoy outdoor climate. Another is that the view to the sky is unlimited as the upper balcony is not shading the lower.

Individuality and a strong identity are the results on the larger scale. On neighbourhood scale, the circular buildings are placed ‘randomly’ upon an elevated level. This protective area is softly shaped, has green plants, and provides spaces for outdoor activities like barbecuing and sunbathing, and for children to meet and play.

At an urban scale, circular shaped buildings have no primary direction and therefore integrate more willingly into the rather heterogeneous environment
of the former docks.
