Ørestad Pocket Park

A pocket park in Ørestad

Outdoor areas in Ørestad are mainly defined by the district’s orthogonal composition. Amongst the building masses are a series of outdoor areas that are characterised as pockets.

NORD Architects designed Prismehaven – a green pocket park next to the V-house in Ørestad, Copenhagen. The geometry is inspired by the building next to it. The first in a line of pocket parks in Ørestad.

The triangulated hills create small pocket shielded from the prominent wind conditions in Ørestad, and forms pots for social interaction. Visually seen from above the strict geometry of the garden forms a strong sculptural view seen from the balconies

Principles and concepts were conceived for the development for several of these parks by way of consulting the area’s residents and users through a series of workshops.
