Light*house, 3XN and UNStudio

Light*house
Aarhus Harbor Front
Aarhus, Denmark

"The Light*house project signals how today's individualization in society can be enriched by new forms of collectivity. From design of the district as a whole to fitting up of the individual house, the project is about bringing people
together
-those who live there as well as those who like to go there. Like in a traditional city centre, but here with an extra multi-storey block dimension."
Ben van Berkel, UNStudio


"The construction appears homogenous as well as individual. As a resident, you will always know your own house from a distance with individual details such as balconies. The characteristic patterns of the facades reflect the reflections of light in water."
Kim Herforth Nielsen, 3XN
