STATUS

COMPLETED

The Kaktus Towers rise 80 m in height on an elevated green plateau – a floating public park with views to lively Vesterbro, Copenhagen Central, and the Copenhagen harbor. Rather than a typical tower – a repetitive structure of simply stacked floor slabs – the Kaktus Towers twist at each level to provide unique perspectives for each of the units.

 

The towers are an exercise in economical construction, wherein the cost effective repetition of skewed floor slabs not only results in an optimal net to gross ratio, but also a striking architectural expression. Each of the 495 residences, arrayed around a central core of vertical circulation, feature custom designed interiors and private terraces.

Generously spaced, multilevel common areas have access to terraces and the green roof, with amenities such as an outdoor kitchen and barbecue area, laundry room, café, indoor and outdoor fitness spaces, and a party room.

 

At the base, a commercial plaza connects to the stream of pedestrians emerging from the nearby Dybbølsbro train station.
