Tower House

Undergraduate studio, Danish Institute for Study Abroad, 2007.
Studio Instructor: Bo Christiansen

A rough concrete enclosure pierced by six finely detailed wood-clad towers which articulate rooms, define circulation, and transmit light. The house has its own skyline: to inhabit the roof terrace is to inhabit the peculiar skyline of Humleby, a post-industrial zone of Copenhagen near the old Carlsberg brewery. Tall stacks, silos, and towers are legible landmarks against the standard six-story height of Copenhagen buildings. Thus, this house mediates between the macro scale (smokestacks and warehouses) and the micro scale (life in a typical Copenhagen row house) by offering a chance for engagement at the mezzo scale.
