Isbjerget (Iceberg) located on a stunning site on the waterfront of Aarhus,out-of-use container terminal, takes its inspiration from floating icebergs in continual motion. The mixed diverse housing types are positioned in four L-shaped wings which contain more than 200 one or two story apartments ranging in size from 55 m2 to 227 m2.
The varied building shapes create a series of apartment types. At ground level a number of 2 story townhouses are integrated into the volume of the varied triangular buildings, while penthouses are located within the ‘peaks’, or pointed spires. . Penthouse apartments are located within the stunning peaks of the building. Balconies feature glass changes in gradations of deep blue at the base to transparent at the top in keeping with the color of an iceberg. A mix of apartments with different balconies, shapes and orientations ensure an urban living environment with social diversity.
The inauguration is scheduled for May.
