The new neighborhood and student housing are the first part of an ambitious masterplan for the coming decade in Gellerupparken, Aarhus, Denmark.
The building concept creates various communities of different scales and characters within a modified perimeter block. It holds 354 housing units, a large courtyard, and many smaller communal areas resulting in and encouraging informal and spontaneous meetings between the students.
The building’s most public functions occur on the ground floor with spaces for small business and other entrepreneurs to operate. This functions as a connection place between the students, the immediate neighbourhood, and the city as a whole, creating and developing new ideas and business models.
A sense of homeliness and neighborhood, coupled with openness and security, are some of the key aspirations of the project.
