Ørestad South: The world’s most sustainable residential building project: UN Village 17


The residential building project UN Village 17 will be located at the tip of Ørestad. 
The building is expected to be completed in 2023, with the team responsible made up of Lendager Group and Aarstiderne Arkitekter. In total 380 homes will be built, based on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. For example, the building project will preserve the local biodiversity of the natural area, be built in reclaimed materials and ensure social inclusion. 

You'll learn about: 

  • Sustainable housing: visit existing projects designed by the architect studio, constructed from reclaimed materials –and hear a presentation by the studio on how they reuse floors, windows and tiles, for example.

  • Sports on the school curriculum: guided tour of Denmark's first state elementary school to focus on sport, health and movement.​

  • On a human scale: low-rise housing and outdoor spaces. 

  • Public sector building: a nursing home with a café, open to the public on the ground floor – with furniture from the 1970s.

Some 15,500 people currently live in the Ørestad region. Ørestad is a study in how to create a mixed neighbourhood: commercial buildings shoot upwards alongside residential apartment complexes and terraced housing. Here, rental and privately owned apartments, housing cooperative blocks and social housing exist in the same neighbourhood. Leading cultural institutions such as the Danish Broadcasting Corporation, DR, and the DR Koncerthuset are also located in Ørestad.

Number of days: ½-1 day.
