For those who do not know, Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark. What makes this city so special is its history, culture, and, of course, architecture. The world knows this city for its sustainable buildings. Moreover, the modern architecture in Copenhagen is based on sustainable living. The architects use materials such as metal building kits to make the construction process successful. This process is an essential part of sustainable building in Copenhagen. We have listed a few sustainability examples from Copenhagen that might draw your attention.
1. Copenhagen Islands Project
Built by the retired company Fokstrot, the aim of the Copenhagen Islands Project is to fight the shrinking of public spaces because of urban development. Some of the buildings in the project are more primitive. But the great majority of sustainable buildings in the Copenhagen Islands Project contain restaurants as well.
2. Amager Bakke
The facility is a fine example of sustainable architecture in Copenhagen. The facility transforms waste into electrical energy and heat. It is unbelievable, but 550.000 Danish households use the power coming from Amager Bakke. Besides, the facility’s electrical power will be low-carbon. And 20% of the waste will be recycled for road construction.
3. Green Lighthouse
The Green Lighthouse is another example of architecture in Copenhagen. Christenson & Co. designed the building that is CO2-neutral. The building uses the energy that comes from solar energy. Besides, it consumes 75% less energy than conventional buildings. The shutters of the building follow the sun during the day. The LEDs are even so sustainable that they adjust themselves to daylight levels.
4. Building on Demand
Building on Demand is one of the examples of sustainable architecture in Copenhagen. The building focuses on the reduction of material waste. The technology allows for the construction of buildings with 3D printers. These eco-friendly houses will use about 2.5 tons less concrete than conventional buildings. Do we need to give more information about CO2 emissions and other sustainable details?
