The aim of this project is to design a sustainable apartment building in the heart of the Faroe Islands. The point of departure is a new urban plan for the city center of Tórshavn, where a harbor front environment with apartments is to be located at Eystara Bryggja.
The challenge of this project is to build on a location beloved by the people of the Faroe Islands. The solution is an area and a building belonging to the people of the Faroe Islands as well as the inhabitants of the building. The area connects the different scales in the landscapes and integrates the energy resource in the area. The building is in dialog with the context and is made accessible for all, not just the inhabitants. The apartments are made private in a public area and have a central heart, generating the life of the home.
