A Green Mountain housing large cubes
The architect for this “green” housing is that have completed playful and green-minded Bjarke ingels Group (BIG), only one project of slope cum-municipal incineration of skis for the city of Copenhagen – by anunlikely combination n of green energy and alpine sportsand recently have we New imaginative cover Gallery from BIG place for Greenland.
Here brief was to create the body, 1 / 3 to 2/3-parking Summit. The result is this cute idea of creating a mountain of large car park and then cubic green plants on the slopes of “mountain”.
“And if the car park form the basis on the course terraced housing – as a hill of concrete with a thin layer of housing, cascading from the 11th floor at the edge of the road”?
“Instead of two separate buildings, decided a side by side – car park and a block of rooms – we bring together the two functions in a symbiotic relationship”.
Mountain houses such as a district in the suburb houses flows gardens on 10 floors – suburban life with urban density shown.
“Parking on the road be connected must”, explains ingels, “and houses require sunlight, fresh air and views, therefore the apartments have a roof with a view to the Sun, incredible views of the garden and car park on the tenth floor.”
While the density of the inhabitants of which has a sustainable urban green atmosphere under houses Summit, in the heart of the parking lot of the mountain is another story.
The mountain is built based on House cars. In contrast to good green heart of the project the incinerator/ski slope is this time, his artificial mountain housing.
The gigantic car park contains 480 parking and a sloping elevator to the internal wall of the mountain moves. In some places, the height of the ceiling is the impression of one space Cathedral 16 meters.
The result is a true mountain. Rising in the distance, this enclosure close-packed in the city orestad offers the best of both worlds: peace close to the life of the city of Copenhagen, but in the suburbs more green available.
“I work with the idea of hedonistic sustainability, sustainability is to improve the quality of life and improves the human perception”, that is, ingels described his work on the project of Copenhagen. It is also here.
