Synthesis of the case study

Kalvebod Brygge Wave provides a connection between the water and the office buildings looming over the river. It represents a series of platforms above the river that take into account the wind and sun conditions to attract locals to the waterfront. The new recreational area blends together with cities existing infrastructure and connection networks. The pier allows for a flexible public space to host events and is perfect for the kayakers who use the harbour, who now have a kayak slide and a ‘kayak hotel’ storage facility. The new waterfront is welcoming to walkers, joggers, cyclists, skaters, swimmers and kayakers and also tourists who enjoy the exceptional view out over the harbour.
