The spacious, bright homes of Karolinehaven
The development consists of two tower blocks, one with three and one with seven storeys, and a more cohesive structure towards the east, which has a terrace-like division into two sections: one of four and one of six storeys. Parking is located at ground level under the green courtyard area. Here there are 55 covered parking spaces with direct access to the development’s staircases. There are also 27 parking spaces on the ground south of the development.
The building creates a cohesive ‘serpentine structure’ around an inner atrium environment. The cohesive built structure forms good, well-defined urban spaces on three sides and opens to the west with four distinctive end walls. The openness to the west makes the atrium area bright and means that all flats in the development have uninterrupted views. The distinctive end walls of the development also fit in with the area’s characteristic end-wall motif along Sønderbro.
The building’s ‘fractured’ shape creates variety and movement in the surrounding urban spaces, while the inner courtyard is attached to the green area in front. The layout for the 97 dwellings in the development includes a total of eight staircases, distributed along the building’s outer façade, where the building faces the city. In general, the spacious, bright staircases provide access to three flats on each floor. The staircases also provide residents with direct access to the communal green areas in the central atrium on the 1st floor and access to the covered car park on ground-floor level.
Most of the flats are between 82 and 112 m², with some between 114 and 150 m². All the flats have been designed with a large combined kitchen-dining area and living room with a south- or west-facing balcony.
