2015 - 2017
Eclectic with new connections
Connections from city to sea
Surrounded by a mix of former industrial buildings, an allotment society of tiny structures, and newer 7-storey owner-occupied housing blocks, the area by the north-eastern shores of Amager has a particularly eclectic feel. Spatial qualities in the old neighborhood can be found in hidden passage ways, quaint courtyards and changing scales.
The diverse group of landowners shared a vision to maintain qualities of the old industrial area while developing a new neighborhood with a mix of housing and commercial activities. They commissioned Vandkunsten Architects in 2015 to develop the masterplan and lead the process for local planning approval.
The masterplan holds our interpretation of the original scale and diversity of this corner of Amager. With deep green wedges and narrow pedestrian streets, the masterplan emphasizes the proximity to the sea and adds connections to the city.
