Redmolen in Copenhagen is a development project comprising five new buildings in the rapidly growing harbour district Nordhavn. The project includes two commercial buildings, a hotel, two housing blocks and a basement.
The five new buildings face the UN city in Copenhagen, near Nordhavn station. The project comprises an iconic commercial building of approx. 26,000 m2, a hotel of approx. 11,000 m2, another commercial building of approx. 4,000 m2, and two housing blocks of approx. 10,000 m2 and 3,000 m2 respectively, where almost every apartment has ocean views.
All five buildings are connected and share a basement with parking spots and a technical control room.
PFA is the building owner of the overall project and handles part of the extension and conversion of the former industry and port areas in Nordhavn to liveable new neighbourhoods.
A mixture of commercial buildings and housing will contribute to ensuring a diverse interplay of people – and thereby create life and interaction along the piers and in the new squares.
PFA has prioritised DGNB certification of the new buildings and thus contributes to the creation of an environment friendly new district.
The iconic commercial building, called ‘Spidsen’ (the tip) is located at the edge of the pier. The building frame is round with an interior atrium, open to the public, designed as a scenic winter garden, supplementing the maritime environment outside the building.
The building is designed for a wide range of tenants, as all floors of the building can be divided into up to three separate leases.
The use of 3D models in the project planning has been a factor in ensuring sound technical solutions in the geometrically challenging building.
