In 2006, in the Danish city of Vejle, work began on this 14,000-square-meter complex of 100 apartments. Two of the five towers were completed and it stayed that way for years, thanks to the global financial crisis of 2008, which brought construction to a stop. Work resumed in 2015, two years after Henning Larsen’s death in June 2013.
The continuous undulating cladding is composed of terracotta panels, forming an eave over the glazed facades, with balconies protecting privacy through screens. Each tower of nine floors is crowned with a double-height attic. Inside, the spaces are designed to optimize views of the fiord and the wooden floors extend to the balconies. The project also includes a promenade with stairs that stretches along the east side of the complex.
