Øresund Strandpark, a housing development just steps away from Copenhagen's popular Amager Strand, consists of 400 housing units and combines three different types of apartments to ensure the construction's variety and flexibility. In the design of the homes, emphasis has been placed on creating as favorable daylight conditions for all homes as possible. The homes are located along the metro line as well as the super-bike route and thus create a direct and fast connection to workplaces, cultural experiences, etc. in the city center. While the metro itself is relatively quiet, the façade is designed and fitted out to reduce noise within the apartment.
The development consists of three types of housing: 'terraced houses', apartments and penthouses. The ground floor apartments are the 'terraced houses', each with two levels and their own garden terrace. The homes are intended to be rental homes, and the variety of housing types is geared towards welcoming a diverse composition of residents.
The five apartment blocks are centered around green courtyards with attractive outdoor areas that open onto the surrounding area. The courtyards are integrated into the building as a reinterpretation of the classic block of flats in Copenhagen and form a new public route from the city center, through the residential buildings to the water.
The building is designed to interact with the area's existing typologies, which are dominated by Amager Strand Park, the metro and housing. The house rises between four and 12 floors and helps to create a new dynamic in the area.
