Of the many new estates at Copenhagen Harbour, Havneholmen by architect Lene Tranberg from Lundgaard & Tranberg is one of the most interesting. Located on an island at the entrance to the harbour – just opposite Fisketorvet and with a walkway to Islands Brygge.

The project builds upon an urban plan that transforms a former industrial area to a modern, integrated residential and business zone, taking better advantage of the harbour front location. The project consists of 236 apartments in two U-shaped blocks with inner courtyards opening towards the harbour.

Varying heights of 5 to 8 storeys visually reduce the scale of the project and, along with the thin proportions of the glass partitions, give the white facades a light and graceful appearance. The entire project, including the projecting bays, is rendered in warm white stucco with teak fenestration, giving the entire project a maritime feel.
