Arrow Carlsberg — probably the best development in Copenhagen

- probably the best development in Copenhagen

As promised here is the thread for the new, huge Carlsberg development area in Copenhagen. I will arrange the thread continously, however, at first it will appear more simple.

The short story:

In a maneuver of increasing effectivity Carlsberg Group decided to move their large brewery activities located on their historic premises in Copenhagen to Fredericia. This made room for a whole new urban area to be created in the centre of Copenhagen. A comprehensive programming phase was held initially involving neighbors and other IOs. Carlsberg wanted to receive an overall input of ideas on the future of their site before running a formal ideas competition on the area.

An international ideas competition on a master plan for the area was held in early 2007. In all 221 proposals from all over the world came in. On the 22nd of May 2007 the winner was announced, Danish architects entasis.

The winning proposal on a master plan then went into a working process. Extensive amounts of public dialogue was carried out along the way with hundreds of meetings with neighbors and IOs etc. providing yet another input on the reworking process of the winning master plan proposal. After a year of processing the final master plan was presented and handed over to the politicians on the 9th of May 2008. It is now up to the politicians to agree on a new, overall district plan for the area.

Facts:

Developer:
Carlsberg Properties

Official website of the project:
www.voresby.com

Size of the area:
330.000 m2 including nine high-rises

Timeframe:
2009-2020

Master plan architect/winner of the international master plan competition:
Entasis

Primary consultant/designer on the new squares and parks:
Vogt Landscape Architects

The original, winning proposal:



Architects involved at this stage with detail design:

Phase 1 (construction start January 2009):
Henning Larsen Architects
Årstiderne Arkitekter
Tegnestuen Vandkunsten

Phase 2 (construction start currently unknown):
Entasis
Ladner Meier Arkitekten
C. F. Møller Architects

(Note that all in all the project consists of around 20 phases)

Overall status (updated 15/6-2008):
Currently going through the political decision process. There seems to be a huge majority in favor of the project. Construction supposed to commence January 2009

Keywords describing the project:
CO2 neutral, classical urbanity, squares, towers, openness, public dialogue, parks, organic facades, suncells, affordable housing, "Our City", rooftop architectural parasites, water, hanging gardens, diversity, cellars, small shops

The main idea of the master plan:

Lets create the classical, dense city again in a modern, updated version. We know it works on creating life and activity 24/7. We don't want a new Ørestad based on the principles of modernism. Lets mix this classical approach with some tall towers creating identity and some unique squares, where people can meet. Hide the cars in huge, underground parking silos on the outskirts of the city so that the cars are kept out of the area. Lets focus on pedestrians, bicyclists and public transportation. Lets reuse the old, industrial facilities for cultural activities (dance halls, galleries, concert halls etc.)

Phase 2

Status (updated 16/6-2008):
Entasis, Ladner Meier Arkitekten and C. F. Møller Architects are involved design-wise. The new Carlsberg Group and DK HQ by C. F. Møller Architects has been put on hold as the Carlsberg Group is busy focusing on the huge Scottish & Newcastle takeover.

Renderings from phase 2:

NIL yet

Hmm. Weird things found in the renderings...

Really good job Fab5,

What about making a twin of this thread in this section: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/forumdisplay.php?f=904

...maybe some international forumers would be interested in following the future development

Great work! What kind of project is Ladner Meier Arkitekten involved in and what kind of company is it, never heard about them before?

And will it take long before some of the more high profile projects start to get going - with the potenially larger international names involved? Is that already in the earlier stages or will it take ages?

Someone told me, that they are involved with entasis' first resi project (marked on the huge rendering). They are based in Copenhagen too (in the same building as entasis BTW).

The strategy of Carlsberg Properties seems to be focused on gaining some hands-on experiences while running the first phase (three resi projects + a square, "Industrikulturens Plads". If this phase is a success we will see the project running pretty fast, I think. I don't know whether they hold ambitions on involving A-list architects - hopefully! The first high-rise will probably be the 50 meter hotel project close to phase 1.

BTW: I did some "studies" on the volume and size of the proposed towers for Carlsberg. My point of departure was the 120 meters tall, 20x20 meter high-rise. I wanted to look at it in comparison with the Copenhagen Town Hall.

Thanks to FREKI - I used one of your old pics as "frame".

I am not finished with the processing and I will probably end up adjusting the height a bit.

The Copenhagen Town Hall (106 meters, quardratic footprint of roughly 10x10 meters):



The proposed 120 meters, 20x20 Carlsberg high-rise:

Interesting. Maybe you could put it next to the town hall for comparison. (the NIMBYs would love it)

I don't want to make it too easy for them! BTW: My little work shows how easy it is to make an exceptionally small tower look huge - just choose the right frame.

Very nice work, Fab5. I haven't seen the street level renderings before - they look very nice. Reminds me a lot of the redevelopment plans for Sofielund in Malmö which will undergo similar refurbishment albeit on a smaller scale (no highrises for example).

Wow, look great. They could better make a cluster of towers, not spread them. But this project looks amazing!

Done then - but I screwed up the title not realizing that special rules apply in that part of the forum... I will probably have a mod complaining within 30 minutes...

BTW: I hope you will back me up and all help me in running the thread over in the General Urban Developments forum. We all know how fast things run there and how aggressive people can act.

Interesting that they are combining towers with the aim to recreate in a modern guise a classical urban space. Just curious, how central is this really, and how will it affect Copenhagen's skyline of classical spires and towers?
Kulturpladsen looks good, I like the idea of revamped factory buildings.

It depends on how you define "central", however, it is 2.500 meters from the Copenhagen Town Hall Square, 2.000 meters from Central Station (both as the crow flies).

It is supposed to support the existing Copenhagen skyline of spires and towers. That's why the towers are so slender and quardratic.
