Stævnen

Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects as Architects

Stævnen (The Bow) is one of the first buildings completed in the new Ørestad South neighborhood.


The neighbourhood is planned as an exciting, dense and modern urban area composed of buildings of high architectural quality with a varied mix of residential, commercial, retail and institutional uses.


Stævnen is placed in the southern-most and most attractive part of the neighborhood and will have unimpeded views out over the large, protected natural area at Kalvebod Fælled. As an important amenity, the new building will be surrounded by water to the east and south in the form of a large basin which is the new neighborhood’s border to Kalvebod Fælled. A new art plaza showcasing Hein Heinsens‘s large sculpture (which is already installed) lies to the east of the site, and the future canal street will border the site to the west.


Stævnen is formed as a completely new type of block building which will have a characteristic, terraced building profile in varying building heights. The building culminates in the 11 story corner to the southwest which resembles a ship’s stern.
