STATUS

COMPLETED

Vejlevej 11 is a residential building comprising a unique combination of private, public and elderly care homes in Billund, Denmark.

 

The 6,600 m2 residence includes 25 units of public housing to be built for Billund Housing Association, 10 elderly care homes for Billund Municipality, and 28 rental apartments for development group Kirkbi. The building forms a gentle curve along the corner streets of Vejlevej and Hans Jensens Vej, rises to the height of the building on the opposite street, while the corner ends are pressed down to meet the scale of the neighboring buildings.

The overall building expression is conceived as a set of “brick blocks”, associated with the feeling of quality and robustness. The materiality is further strengthened by covering the balconies and the underside of the cantilevering parts with bricks. The top part of the cantilevering boxes become the balconies for the apartments above, enclosed by a transparent handrail of glass.

The building rises in the form of stacked boxes with each unit staggering to create niche spaces for terraces and balconies. The size of the façade openings gradually decrease towards the middle of the building and increase towards the end corners.
