Infills & Urban density around Copenhagen

Will it make any sense making a thread about infills in Copenhagen ?
I hope
These days, we witness quite a lot of densification around the city and in the suburbs.
I think most of us enjoy to watch the transformation of an empty site, a lack of a building in a carré that has been incomplete for a long time, or simply a worn out building that is getting demolished and then re-build in a new temporary design.

According to Wikipedia an infill is..
Quote:
In urban planning, infill is the rededication of land in an urban environment, usually open space, to new construction. Infill also applies within an urban polity to construction on any undeveloped land that is not on the urban margin. The slightly broader term "land-recycling" is sometimes used instead. Infill has been promoted as an economical use of existing infrastructure and a remedy for urban sprawl. Its detractors view it as overloading urban services, including increased traffic congestion and pollution, and decreasing urban green-space.
Let me start with this fine example recently completed at Griffenfeldtsgade 4 Nørrebro, which I think works in harmony in size, height and design.
For a long time there was nothing there and it really complete the housing block in the heart of Nørrebro.

Totalentreprenør: Q-Construction A/S
Arkitekt: Boligarkitekten.dk
Ingeniør: LB Consult

I think it is an excellent idea with this thread. Danish architects should train more in the art of "infilling"
Maybe it could include the subject of renovating architecturally disasterous new infills from the sixties and seventies. LetMeLoose and I have had a couple of postings about this problem, especially in provincial towns, on the Denmark, Projects and Construction thread, .

My personal favourite infill is the very imaginative one on Vesterbrogade, where the new building respects 2 very different buildings on each side.

Thanks
Don't know if that works as a independent discipline in the architect school

Yes that can be included as well. It is obvious, and widen up the thread

Good observation. Nothing is more exciting than diversity that melt together, and create synergy.

A progressing infill in Åbenrå. Not located in Sønderjylland, but the inner city of Copehagen.

Not sure if Danielsen Architecture's building on Halfdansgade in Islands Brygge qualifies as an infill - does it have to fill out a gap between two existing Buildings?

Anyway, it's such as nice addition to the street:

Proposed anonymous infill on Skelbækgade, opposite the new VUC building.
At least it fills an ugly hole in the street picture and increases the density of the Meat Packing City area. (More customers for the restaurants)

Looks completely okay to me! I have really crossed my fingers for am infill at that site but thought it was unrealistic!. Ut makes slightly more sense to me that the SOPU School is pulled back from the street the way it is now that they are Building on the other side (but yes it is still boring like hell!).

Now we just need a make-over of the ugly building on the corner with Sønder Boulevard, preferrably with a small Tower/extra floors at the corner, but yes that is probably unrealistic...

Who actually owns the site these days?

I remember many years ago visiting KHR and discussing the metro project with them, and they mentioned that the metro was offered the plot to build a new station in, but decided that moving a chapel, countless coffins/bodies and generally trying to not damage Assistens Kirkegård, was more desirable than the political and social fallout from attempting to build on jagtvej 69.

(I may be summing up a few parts for the sake of a good story, but it amused me none the less)

It's a prime site, but one does fear that if anyone did dare to develop the plot, would be met with vandalism and the like. A bizarre sort of hallowed ground, if you like.

Good story, that unfortunately example quite well the fear and exaggerated wrong respect the authorities dealing with against cartains underground groups.
But yes, Jagtvej 69 is still suffering from the dull violence and vandalism that characterize or embossed spot in many years.

It's obvious seems, for some unhappy reason, that no action has been taken from the owner, the 'Udviklingsselskabet af 2010 APS', and that the development is ended in a vacuum of paralysis .
A link about the latest (in danish).

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 floors that's the good question ? Is an infill suppose to continue and follow the old design and the environment, or should it be higher, wilder, more significant ?





At Valby Langgade 110, the perfect infill now topped out. Or is it that perfect ? Some will claim that the construction should have continued all the way to the next gabled and the classic closed yard. One can also say this leave a bit of view and air to the existing building.
At least the gabled could be decorated or greened or something else..
