The Iceberg, Aarhus, Denmark

  • Tipologia costruzione:
  • Edifici residenziali
  • Parcheggi
Schermo intero Chiudi Street View

The Iceberg is located at a prime location on the outmost harbor front in Aarhus’ new quarter Aarhus Ø (Aarhus East) and consists of 208 apartments. The Iceberg will contribute to transform the former container port of Aarhus into a vibrant new neighborhood that on completion will be home to 7.000 inhabitants and provide 12.000 workplaces.

The Iceberg is laid out as four L-shaped wings, where the street spaces in between open towards the water. In order to obtain optimal daylight conditions and views over the bay for as many apartments as possible the building volume is cut up by jagged lines. The roofs rise and fall into peaks and valleys, which create visual passages that allow views across the individual volumes – like floating icebergs that constantly refract one’s gaze. Thus, even the apartments in the back wing can enjoy the view. By applying this simple algorithm to the design the spectacular iceberg structure emerged.
