The new residential development lies on India Quay in Copenhagen’s former Freeport area, amid historic red brick buildings, rich in detail and close to the castle fortification and Langelinie waterfront.

The project is designed in three blocks, integrated with respect for the original planning grid for this area, characterized by straight lines and right angles.

The project is comprised of 23 apartment units dispersed over 3 stories and roof terrace. The characteristic black slate roofs provide an asymmetric profile which blend with the eves of the adjacent buildings, and the steep roofs facing north and west are furnished with double-height dormers.

The buildings’ compact form and brick clad facades are interrupted by large windows and balconies to draw light into the apartments, and offer views to the historic sourroundings. Patterned brickwork is featured in large sections of the facades to provide a variety of texture and to emphasize variation in materials.

All buildings in the area speak the same language, but with a 100 year time gap, where the common idioms are red brick, black slate roofs, large surfaces, asymmetry and fondness for detail.
