The existing halls at the Paper Island (Christiansholm), are modified slightly with people-friendly, lively edge zones and used for various informal and recreational public functions. These are combined with new structures on top for different types of housing adorned with roof top gardens. The aim of our competition proposal was to set guidelines that could enhance the island’s current status as a vibrant urban destination. We wanted to preserve most of the existing open, multifunctional structures with their spacious harbor-industrial halls.
