Krøyers Plads is finally completed and its residents have moved in. The 3 five-story housing units takes its inspiration in the building typology already found in the surrounding area - the industrial warehouse. As a continuation of the existing warehouse structure along the harbour front, all situated perpendicular to the water’s edge with characteristic gables in varying heights, Krøyers Plads becomes a contemporary version of the warehouse, deeply anchored in the typology and the historical site in Copenhagen.

A new name for the University of Copenhagen's new square and student hang-out is now official: Karen Blixens Plads, named after the famous Danish poet Karen Blixen.

 

One core element of the design is the creation of high capacity bicycle parking under and around three bicycle hills. Another is the integration of the University’s urban functions with the adjacent nature reserve, Amager Fælled. With its approximately 20.000 m2, Karen Blixen Plads will be one of the biggest public squares in Copenhagen.
