Østerbrogade 105 is a new residential property set among historical town houses in one of Copenhagen’s most desirable areas.

The building’s unique facade composition tells a modern story of variation and sculptural form, taking its cue from the rich detail of the neighbouring properties. The reddish-brown facades of recycled brick and the modernistic bays link the building with the neighbourhood. The bays, clad in copper and glass, are set like eyes upon the facade. They offer a space where residents can step out and look far down the street, as well as drawing natural light deep into the apartments. The dense brickwork which rounds off and concludes the block stretches for its entire length above a light glass wall which adorns the tall ground floor. The contrast of the heavy surface floating above the light, tall glass facade gives the building a touch of modernity and an unexpected base.
