Iceberg / Cebra + JDS + Louis Paillard + FIND
One of our favorites, Cebra, (and they collaboraters JDS, research and Louis Paillard) have shared their last participation in the contest winner. Located in Aarhus, Danish, otherwise the port, the project features a mixture of 21 500 m2 of residential and commercial buildings.
This project received the jagged peaks to allow for a better view to the sea and better light conditions, and the top and bottom must be staggered so that the volume of the view that possible.
This weight distribution creates the possibility of the icon “” building for the port area, and who, because of its shape, creating their own horizon of the Interior itself.
There’s something about the Danish approach, “as the BIG + Cebra, where they approached the simple facts, such as light and outlook, and to enable all of their buildings to meet the unconventional and dynamic.
As the masses are fit to receive the light and views, change allows many different types of flats. On level ground, a number of town houses built in volume, and the top apartment buildings containing spectacular pent house.
Between the upper and lower levels, many apartments with balconies, form and guidance can be found. The apartments are designed to ‘ensure the urban environment with a diverse community of people of various ages, incomes and living with family relationships.
House became a way to mix all types of users, not just in the same building but on the same floor with a way to become a truly environmentally integrated.
There were advantages and disadvantages to this series, but look at the positive side, the architects hope that “such as elderly care children in exchange for shopping or helping students with homework or to configure the computer – a community of people who are different, make sure that the complex life around hour. ”
