Krøyers Plads

Krøyers Plads is a five-storey housing project with a significant location in the centre of the Copenhagen harbour area designed by Danish architects COBE and Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects.

The site constituted a gap in the continuous rows of old warehouses that sit perpendicular to the harbour and was an architectural and political battlefield in Copenhagen for more than a decade. When the final building design for this beautiful historical site was developed, many architectural proposals had already been rejected by local organizations and politicians for various reasons.

The project consists of three five-storey housing units, naturally continuing the warehouse structure along the harbour. Folded roofs and architectural heaviness create a dialogue between old and new. The design was based on a hyper-democratic and contextual concept. An architectural storytelling that through dialogue with the local community strived to create a modern, empathetic and comprehensive interpretation of the architectural uniqueness of the old Copenhagen warehouses. Instead of inventing a new building typology, Krøyers Plads became a modern reinvention of the industrial warehouses found adjacent to the site. This expression continues in the Krøyers Plads façade taking its inspiration from the red and yellow brick materiality of the surrounding area.

Krøyers Plads is an award-winning project, and in addition, it is exceptionally Denmark’s first Nordic Eco-labelled housing project.
