This Master Thesis report presents the work and outcome of designing a sustainable building for contemporary student housing. The work is conducted as the final part of the Master’s education in Architecture from the Department of Architecture & Design at the Aalborg University. The building site is located in the Stigsborg Harbourfront area, which is being redeveloped as a new urban neighbourhood after laying fallow for many years. The framework of the project is based on the development strategy for area made by the Aalborg municipality. The aim of the project is to design a building for contemporary student housing that balances private and social human needs, based on the research conducted by Ingrid Gehl and published in her 1971 book “Bo-Miljø” (Living Environment) (Gehl, 1971). To meet the demands of the Danish Building Regulations, the energy frame and indoor environment of the building has been evaluated through static and dynamic simulations made with BE15 and BSim.
