Sluseholmen: 8 Years On

It´s hard to comprehend that 8 years ago, the first residents were moving into Copenhagen`s latest residential fledgling, Sluseholmen. From the initial 2 residential islands, Birkholm and Fyrholm, the area has grown to 8 islands with the iconic Metropolis tower tagging along with the adjacent public harbor baths being a focal point for many of South Harbor´s residents. This summer , the warmest for a generation or two, has seen the canals linking the islands to the harbor, being transformed into a chill-out playground. Kayaks mingle with toddlers in water-wings and during these gorgeous long summer evenings the canals have become a scene for ad-hoc floating concerts. With plans of 3 more islands on the near horizon and a Metro-line looming, the next 8 years promise to keep Sluseholmen firmly on all visiting architects and urban planners on their to-do list. As for this happy resident, sitting on his balcony, listening to the swooshing of oars of a rowing boat passing by, I will keep you posted about this youngest of hoods.

  2. Thanks for your kind words.
    The theme is Wordpres/Infoway which I can strongly recommend. Simple and unclustered.
