Danish architecture firms Lendager Group and Tredje Natur recently proposed designs for a new residential and commercial building in the Ørestad area of Copenhagen.

While the proposal was not chosen for construction by Solstra Development, the designed high-rise, called “Common House,” illustrated what an upcycled high-rise would be like.

Danish architecture firms Lendager Group and Tredje Natur recently proposed designs for a new residential and commercial building in the Orestad area of Copenhagen.

“CPH Common House rethinks the traditions of the classic Copenhagen courtyard building and incorporates micro climate, resource use and recycling of materials into the overall architectural approach,” the architects said.

“It is an innovative and effective example of how to build high while contributing positively to the development of Copenhagen’s sustainable profile."

The Plans

The 98,000-square-foot structure, called “Common House,” would combine a courtyard and high-rise building by splitting a 245-foot corner tower into terraced “wings” that would create the courtyard space and balconies, which incorporate green space.

”With CPH Common House, we want to show that you can easily build high and densely without losing the connection to history, context and the human scale,” said Ole Schrøder, partner at Tredje Natur.

“The project is based on a strong understanding of the site, resources and the microclimate, which results in an empathetic benchmark for sustainable high-rise buildings in Copenhagen.”

The 98,000-square-foot structure, called “Common House,” would combine a courtyard and high-rise building by splitting a 245-foot corner tower into terraced “wings” that would create the courtyard space and balconies, which incorporate green space.

The tower would feature recycled tiles and concrete with brick fractures, paneling from recycled window frames and reclaimed wood flooring.

The team estimated that the project would make sure of 17,577 tons of recycled material, saving about 1,174 tons of carbon emission in the construction phase.

”For Solstra Development, it has been crucial to collaborate with architects that could provide the best possible basis for the further process,” said Søren Raae Teisen, Development Director at Solstra.

“Here Tredje Natur and Lendager Group have exemplified how to build a distinctive high-rise building with great qualities and values in both the housing units as well as the outdoor spaces.”
