Central Aarhus: the leading Danish architect studios design the country’s most expensive housing 

 

Take an ArkiTours study tour and learn more about: 

 

  • The strategic urban plan for the area (according to the municipality’s planning department).​

  • You’ll visit the different housing complexes that make up the top 3 most expensive houses in Denmark, including the architect studio BIG’s latest take on attractive housing – and its approach to using 20 boathouses to invite the business sector, a church and other organisations into a residential area.

  • The ideas behind the urban space at Basin 7 designed by Gehl Architects

  • The area around DOKK1: citizen service centre and library, designed by SHL. Can be combined with a visit to the architectural studio. ​

  • The most recent area – the Sydhavnen neighbourhood: a mixed-use district, including an old slaughterhouse, a number of different businesses and a creative business centre, with some placed in listed buildings, others in brand new ones. Residential accommodation and shelters for socially vulnerable citizens.
