Modern meets classic pattern

Modern meets classic Marimekko printed cotton fabrics. The pattern in the middle titled Veljekset displays Finnish folk tales and is designed by young designer Maija Louekari to celebrate Finland’s 100th year of independence in 2017. The pattern next to Veljekset named Iso Noppa was designed by Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi in 1954.

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.

Frederiksberg rooftops

Frederiksberg is a densely populated municipality within the city of Copenhagen. Frederiksberg is known for the many parks, villa districts and many older buildings.
