Havneholmen consists of four wedge-shaped structures that mark the outermost approach to the Tømmergraven houseboat harbour. At street level, there is a landscaped route from the point of arrival, Havneholmen, all the way out to the harbour basin and the wooden promenade at the wharf. The buildings take advantage of the curved shape of the site and are placed in a fan shape that follows the sun’s passage across the sky.
The buildings extend all the way out to the quayside. Like the outdoor spaces, all 148 flats face the area’s obvious amenity value – the water.
Large balconies provide the residents with optimum views of the city and the water. The slanting, cut roof profile of the buildings means the uppermost flats feature large roof terraces.
