Himmelbyen, Copenhagen, Denmark

Himmelbyen is located in the southern part of Ørestad and thus close to Kalvebod Fælled’s enormous nature reserve. Amager Strand’s long, beautiful coastline entices with water sports, beach life and swimming trips nearby.

Clad in white concrete with light facade panels and thermo pine wooden cladding impregnated with Burnblock®, Himmelbyen draws attention beautifully and crudely. The homes stand out stylishly, like a modern city at height – which catches the eye from below and holds the gaze from the homes above.
