Mixed-use project, which appears as the development of private financing largest in Denmark.
“This large mixed-use development includes 61.000 meters squares divided into different functions. With over 10,000 square meters spread between retail and offices (the rest is residential use), its development ranks as the largest private initiative ever built in all of Denmark . Manager 2006, this set aims to give life to the southern sector Orestad. Very different from traditional apartment block, the 8 House integrates all elements of urban life in one building through different layers that coexist virtually creating a neighborhood where suburban life is similar to developing life in the city, where homes and office buildings coexist.
Regarding the project itself, the 8 House creates 2 courtyards which guarantee both sunlight and views for each unit. The east and west are connected through a space generated by the project at its center. the scale of the project is also an important factor, since it delivers leadership to the rest of the built environment and allows a privileged view of the canal in Copenhagen
While departments are located at the top, the trade is displayed at the bottom. As a result, each layer horizontally depending on your height get different benefits: housing achieve better lighting and views, while commercial and office areas serve the pedestrian on the street.
A continuous corridor allows travel throughout the building from the ground to its top. In this way, pedestrians and residents can tour the building even a bicycle. 2 diagonal planes are green cover (1,700 m2) to prevent excess heat from sunlight.
8 3d House is a neighborhood rather than an architectural object itself as such. ”
