Theartificial island occupies a prime location next to the Opera House and the Royal Danish Playhouse. Building on the provisional urban life already present on the island, the architects’ proposal replaces the oldwarehouseswith new ones containing an event hall, a gallery hall and a new swimming pool. Housing and commercial spaces will be placed on top of the halls, which encircle an intimate green courtyard. A public promenade will run along the perimeter of the island.

“Our vision for the island’s future is to create a place that celebrates the city’s culture and the Copenhagen way of life. It was important for us that Christiansholm will be a first class example of Copenhagen’s generous urban livingthat can attract tourists and visitors and have a strong local presence at the same time,” says Dan Stubbergaard, owner and creative director at COBE.
