Urban diversity in the former industrial area
Non-profit housing, nursing homes and day care
The old industrial neighborhood at Carl Jacobsens Vej in Valby near Copenhagen is characterized by red masonry structures at a variety of sizes. In 2008 Vandkunsten Architects developed the masterplan for the transformation of the area from an industrial part far outside the city – to a mixed urban neighborhood on the outskirts of central Copenhagen. The original character was maintained in the plan with a distinct red expression as well as lots of sprout-like buildings and dense back yards.
In 2012 Vandkunsten Architects got the commission to design and build the first housing complex in the urban transformation. The mixed housing scheme at Carl Jacobsens Vej has social housing, nursery homes as well as care facilities for mentally handicapped tenants.
There is a mix of housing types within the housing complex: two-storey row houses blended with regular one-storey apartments, penthouse homes and artists’ studios
