Amager Strandvej, stage 4
København S
2018 - 2020

Char­ac­ter and vari­a­tion

After completing the master plan and local planning process, Vandkunsten was asked to design projects in the plan for housing developer Gefion. The project is  housing and commercial.

The masterplan collects and interprets part of the original Amager character. As something new, the plan strengthens the connection from the city to the sea. This is possible at this particular stretch before the Metro is elevated as a highline cutting off the rest of Amager from the Eastern shoreline.

The two building of the phase of the development is surrounded by a luscious and green courtyard and a lively streetscape.
