lundgaard-tranberg, havneholmen housing, 2006-2008

havneholmen housing, copenhagen, denmark, 2006-2008.

architects: lundgaard & tranberg, www.ltarkitekter.dk

 

following the mountain dwellings, here is another succesful housing project done within a flawed urban plan. the panoramic stitch is also pretty flawed, but shows the dramatic gesture of lundgaard-tranberg's houses towards the open space of the copenhagen harbour well.

 

it could be argued that the elaborate exterior suggests a community which simply is not there. it is never really there in new copenhagen housing, though, a lost ability or longing - or necessity - with architects and inhabitants alike.

 

that's MVRDV's silo housing on the far right, once again an exciting house in a disappointing urban plan.
