Founders House, a greenhouse for entrepreneurial spirits

copenhagen_njalsgade_00

Tucked away from the glare of street life on Njalsgade, Founders House has been blossoming for sometime now. This non profit project has been offering young creative tech entrepreneurs, a vibrant co-working space to grow, as what the team behind Founders House call “Start-up Village”. The concept, though not new, but it´s exciting that it is happening here in this closely knit urban community of Islands Brygge. The yard space is dominated by two warehouses and the space raised between them has been playfully raised creating an inner, intimate yard. Having recently got back from a trip to Berlin, I felt that the yard space had been  imported from the experimental Mitte.

The area around this part of Njalsgade, is quickly gaining a reputation for it´s creative vibe, which has been greatly enhanced by the presence of two Denmark´s architectural giants, White and Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects. It is an interesting choice of location for these two innovative architectural studios and one that should be recommended. Putting architects, urban planners and designers into such a tight knit residential community can only be beneficial. Any interested urban planner, student or experienced visiting Copenhagen should pay a call to Njalsgade 17-21.
