Isbjerget - Aarhus
The Danes are phenomenal on designing contemporary and sustainable homes, take this stunning building 'The Iceberg' which resembles a cluster of floating icebergs along the harbour front at Aarhus. The Iceberg was amongst the first housing projects to be completed in the former container port of Aarhus, an area which is currently being transformed to be one of the trendiest places to live and work in the city.
The Iceberg is constructed in a way that provides optimum sea view from the apartments, and the criss-cross points make the building a strong resemblance to icebergs breaking up.
The roofs rise and fall into peaks and valleys, which create visual passages across the individual volumes - like floating icebergs.
The building has over 200 apartments designed in true Scandinavian simplicity and functionalism.
