About Phillip

cph_about_00My name is Phillip, a British spatial designer living and working in Copenhagen with an eye for spaces and places. Born and raised in Nottingham and with proud roots in Galloway in Scotland I was happily imported to Copenhagen in 1981 by my wife, Jette. My knowledge of the city was minimal, only that it was flat and that you could hear a blackbird sing in the Town Hall Square during the rush hour, it was that quiet.

During the last 35 years, Copenhagen has transformed from a provincial ugly duckling to a dynamic metropolis that has become a focal point for architects, urban and spatial designers, foodies and trendspotters. Parallel with the city’s transformation, I developed my skills as a spatial designer working on many corporate spaceplanning and interior design projects in Copenhagen.

This site is dedicated simply for sharing my experiences and explorations of Copenhagen’s urban landscapes and landmarks that continue to engage me in their unique ways.

  4. Hej Phillip

    Virkelig gennemført side du har fået lavet, et stort arbejde ligger bag.

    Hilsen din svoger Palle 🙂

  5. Hej, nu hvor jeg har læst din profilen Phillip, og set de smukke billeder du har lagt på, kan jeg glimrende sætte mit i dit sted, idet jeg har cyklet København tynd gennem utroligt år og siden barndommen; Løbet byen mod Amager, ad. Solstriben tynd, mens der endnu var marker derude i “Ørestaden” og før tiden med Bella Sky hotellet.

    Engang i 1980´erne – blev et lille stykke af Amager Fælled, nær Natur Centret, åbnet,blot en enkelt helligdag i foråret, hvor vi – måtte cykle – eller hvad vi nu havde lyst til at bevæge os med/i, – inden “Ørestaden” gennem nogle blev tømt (bogstavelig talt sprængt) for granater. (øv- somme tider vågnede vores børn ved det – når de sov middagslur i barnevognen udendørs).

    Sjovt at følge byggeriet ind over Islands Brygge også, Fields og Fisketorvet med.

    Gad vide hvornår turen kommer til Dragør, ad Tulipanhuset, Zytfensgade, et af min families historiske huse derude ved Strandlinien og til minde om Fr. Grubb og Fr. Bahr. (mine aner fra Sverige + Flensburg).

    Venlig hilsen

    med også – Mac Dougall aner /(Skotsk Clan) – Mawson slægt m.v. herunder disse fra Durham/England m.fl.
