A Town in the Building


Housing Vision

Team: ADEPT | Year: 2011 | Type: Contest


In Århus (Denmark), a transformation plan turns the former industrial harbour into an attractive waterfront. On its northern part, between its preserved part and the new district is set the competition's site.

This project provides a sustainable, eventful and varied architecture by arranging buildings along the site’s edges, to enhance dwelling's light conditions and to protect from winds the inner green open-space.

Århus tradition emerges thanks to the scale breakdown of facades and volumes, and the use of local materials and textures for exterior cladding. Building's sustainability relies on green water-collecting surfaces, solar panels and greenhouses placed on the rooftops.
