Krøyers Plads is finally completed and its residents have moved in. The 3 five-story housing units takes its inspiration in the building typology already found in the surrounding area - the industrial warehouse. As a continuation of the existing warehouse structure along the harbour front, all situated perpendicular to the water’s edge with characteristic gables in varying heights, Krøyers Plads becomes a contemporary version of the warehouse, deeply anchored in the typology and the historical site in Copenhagen.
