From the Architects:
In cooperation with engineers LB Consult, CEBRA has won the competition for 48 new student housings in Denmark’s 5th largest city Esbjerg. The eye-catching proposal consists of 26.910 sq. ft. apartments spread across ten floors and outdoor areas with terraces and activity zones such as a street basket field. The project is commissioned by the housing association Ungdomsbo and they expect the first students to move in by January 2014. The building contains two basic functions: apartments – both for students and for young elitist sports practitioners – and common areas. The common areas are located at ground level, with direct access to the terraces and outdoor activities, and on the roof, with a spectacular view over the Danish Wadden Sea. By placing the apartments between the two common areas, the building achieves a high level of flexibility and the housings can be reorganized freely, according to possible changing functional demands in the future.
