  • How to eliminate the 'block' masterplans of the 60'ties and design new housing in order to create more density: by adding new housing, by creating proximity to transport and by engaging outdoor space

Houses with used windows and floorboards that would otherwise be thrown away 


Reusing materials is a new and important element in climate-conscious construction. In Copenhagen, you can visit a terraced housing block constructed from reused materials, including wooden floorboards reclaimed from a flooring manufacturer's waste products. The windows come from a demolished housing association block in Jutland. You’ll meet the architectural studio responsible for setting up a department for the procurement of building waste – to be transformed into new elements.


Many of the recent public sector buildings in Copenhagen are also sustainable, from universities to schools and hospitals, so that indoor climate, acoustics and user comfort are all at a high level. Most of them are also financially sustainable, because the buildings are built to last.
