Infill housing structure in central Aarhus

In 2006 BSAA Architects and CUBIS ejendomme began developing the main concept for the site. Due to tight restrictions within the framework of the existing local plan and site policies – This was not a straight forward process. A catalogue of possibilities-approaches and volume densities was developed and presented to the local municipality. In the catalogue we made strong arguments for a “modern” approach to the project. Disagreements were inevitable by the fact that the city planners had a more “historic” design in their minds. Compromises were made and in 2007 we aggraded on the final design. The project encompasses 44 apartments distributes on 3 housing types in the range 60 m² to 120 m².
