Winning proposal for a new social hub in Copenhagen

In co-operation with KPC and CPH City & Port Development, we will develop a new social hub in Ørestad Syd in Copenhagen. Byens Hus (the Town’s House), as it is called, will provide a setting for community and leisure activities for people of all ages in the district.

Situated right next to the site of one of Naturpark Amager’s future main entrances, the Town’s House will be built in scenic surroundings, and will become a stimulating gathering point for the district’s residents. The vision for the house is to gather the district’s community functions under the same roof, so that new opportunities will arise in the interaction between residents.

The Town’s House will be 2,500 square meters, and the development will also include a daycare centre of 2,200 square meters and up to 85 apartments located across 6,700 square meters. In addition to serving as a common house for local residents, the Town’s House will become a cultural house for the entire district.

The Town’s House will be a gathering point for the many residents in Ørestad Syd and it will provide a framework for common and cultural facilities for people of all ages. We look forward to seeing life thrive and events take place against this background.
