STATUS

Kampanilen is a 19-story residential building located in the former industrial port of Denmark’s second largest city, Aarhus. The building is defined by its octagon shape and two clocks integrated into its checkered façade. Moving in a sculptural rotation, the building turns from the local urban space of the immediate surroundings towards the historical city center.

 

Kampanilen is part of BIG’s 100.000 m2 Aarhus Harbor Masterplan, which creates a new public destination in Aarhus and leverages the qualities and unique urban ambience of harbor and bay, land and water.

The characteristic clocks of Kampanilen are a testimony to Aarhus’ iconic town hall. Originally designed by Arne Jacobsen and Erik Møller, the architects intended to build the town hall without a tower. However, due to the public’s disapproval of this design choice, the architects added the characteristic clock tower, and today, it acts as a cherished landmark of Aarhus.

All apartments offer far-reaching views over Aarhus fjord and combine a careful blend of tactile materials, which bring warmth and light to the spaces.
