Project: Rødovre Skyscraper
Designed by MVRDV and ADEPT
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
Type: Hotel, Retail, Offices, Housing.
The municipality of Rødovre, an independent municipality of Copenhagen, Denmark, chose MVRDV and co-architect ADEPT as winners of the design competition of the Rødovre Skyscraper. The 116 meter tall tower accommodates apartments, a hotel, retail and offices. A public park and a plaza are also part of the privately funded scheme. The new skyscraper with a total surface of 21,688m2 will be located at Roskildevej, a major artery East of the centre of Copenhagen. It is after the Frøsilos MVRDV’s second project in Copenhagen. The constellation of the pixels allows flexibility in function; the building can be transformed by market forces, however at this moment it is foreseen to include 970m2 retail, 15,800m2 offices, 3,650m2 housing and 2,000m2 hotel and a basement of 13,600m2 containing parking and storage. Flexibility for adaptation is one of the best sustainable characteristics of a building. Besides this the Sky Village will also integrate the latest technologies according to the progressive Danish environmental standards.
