Aarhus Docklands

Coming from the sea to Aarhus reveals newly established district Aarhus Docklands (2007) which is located in the harbour area. The construction site started developing new residential buildings the very same year it was founded. One of the first buildings finalised is the ISBJERGET residential living complex (2013) designed and developed by four architectural firms, the Danish CEBRA and JDS Architects, French Louis Paillard and Dutch SeARCH. The building especially attracts attention as to its shape, form and colour, standing much out from any other residential building in the world.

Frøsilo

In 1965 Danish factory Sojakage (soja cake) constructed three silos near the harbourfront. In 1992 the factory closed down and then the silos were standing for years unused. Nowadays Frøsilo is private residential area rebuild on the base of twin silos designed and completed by Dutch architects MRVDV in 2005. The building stretches over 10.700 m2 and combines 84 apartments and parking close to the recreational waterfront.
