Krøyers Plads is a significant location in the centre of the Copenhagen harbor area. Several proposals for the development of the area have been rejected mostly by the local population. Therefore, the new Krøyers Plads is based on a hyper-democratic and contextual approach. The project consists of 3 five-story housing units, naturally continuing the warehouse structure along the harbour. Folded roofs and architectural heaviness create a dialogue between old and new. Instead of inventing a new building typology, Krøyers Plads became a modern reinvention of the industrial warehouses found adjacent to the site.
