Green is the New Black and sometimes Blue
Green Living in Copenhagen – A city of sustainability
Jump on the metro and join us on a tour with emphasis on green urban planning, cutting edge architecture and sustainability. We begin our tour in the neighbourhood called Ørestad, an area that emerged in the early nineties, and is known for their green profile. First stop is Bella Center Station, where a general introduction to the area and its history will be unfolded.
The innovative duo Bjarke Ingels and Julien de Smedt (PLOT architects) are the forces behind the spectacular apartment blocks ” The Mountain” & ” VM Houses”. Hear about their sources of inspiration, ideas about sustainability and their love of mountains!
Up-cycling at Copenhagen Towers Hotel
Second stop is at Ørestad Station where we will experience the cool oasis in the lobby of Hotel Copenhagen Towers. They have taken up-cycling to a whole new level, by using recycled building materials like concrete remains, old car tyres and old sails in the decorating of this hotel.
The Savannah and the 8-House
From Vestamager station – the final frontier – we pass an unusual retirement home and enjoy the breathtaking view over ” The Savannah ” on Amager Common. Experience the contrast between grazing cows and the award winning apartment complex the 8-house, designed by our superstar architect Bjarke Ingels.
Christianshavn and Krøyers Place
The tour continues to Christianshavn, where a change of location from new sharp architecture meets old Copenhagen.
We tell about the transition from an industrial harbour to a playground for the locals, where enjoying citylife means a swim in the canals.
Old and new architecture go hand in hand in this old part of Copenhagen. We end the tour by the inner harbour bridge, where you can enjoy something to eat and drink from The Bridge street food kitchen – or in one of the many cafés around Nyhavn.
