Steven Holl reveals design of T-Husene 

Shaped as five "dancing T's" rotated and placed in a green folded landscape, T-Husene contains commercial and residential space. The T's with coloured and reflective undersides carve the sky. Inspired by twilight and the Scandinavian sky, the t-shaped buildings maximise high quality residential floor space with views of the horizon and sunset. Building downwards from the maximum height level, taking into considertion maximum views, each tower will contain 46 apartments in 24 different configurations ranging from 73sq m to 135 sq m. Autonomy, indiviuation and particularity are integral parts of the design for each apartment and tower. T-Husene is part of Orestad, a new town located less than ten minutes away from historic Copenhagen.
