"8-tallet" - sharing futurism from Ørestaden

In Ørestaden, a new neighbourhood in Copenhagen, the architect Bjarke Ingels designed the now famous house "8-tallet" - the number eight. The building is shaped like the number eight, which explaines the name.

The apartments in the building are shaped differently and come in different sizes so they fit big families as well as couples or singles.

The roof features a great view of Amager Fælled - the nature reserve in the background.

The yard is pretty but unfortunately empty.

A large part of Ørestaden is still in the making, but I look forward to seeing the results later on!

8-tallet has many interesting details, such as the grass walls here.

You are not aloud to walk on the grass walls. It is both dangerous and - I guess - pretty disturbing for the people living underneath them.

Outside the building there is a lot of water with small boats in it.

I think it is a very attractive building even though it is all gray.

8-tallet is located close to the metro station "Vestamager" at:

Richard Mortensens Vej
DK-2300 Copenhagen S

There is also a café there called Café 8-tallet, so it is possible to get a cup of coffee even if you don't know anyone in the area.
