3XN is developing a daring yet pragmatic idea in Denmark 

Nordhavnen, situated on the edge of Copenhagen is close to the city centre and faces the harbour, factors which are fuelling its development as a 'hip' quarter. and increasingly a playground for creative designs and buildings. 3XN's 22,000 m2 design includes 4 organic shaped apartment towers which are situated in a free, playful and humanistic urban landscape. The towers consist of elliptical floor plans creating elliptical balconies which shift position moving upwards. The balcony extension to the rational building core is relatively simple and economical affordable, but has high impact on the design. The roundly shaped towers give way for a better view from each apartment, and reduce wind turbulence. Energy consumption is also minimized through the balance between internal area and perimeter. The shifting of the balconies ensures a more direct experience of the sky above.
