The IAK Dormitory is located at Rådmandsgade in Nørrebro, where a close city structure gives way to a more open, dispersed urban pattern.
The 6 level dormitory containing 95 residences, takes form as an linear block placed along the street, to which two tower elements are coupled in an open courtyard.
On each of the five upper floors, the student apartments are organized in two groups all oriented towards the street and the city.
A linear passage connects the apartments with the main stair and kitchens, which are located in the tower elements that project into the open courtyard.
The project is designed with the aim of reflecting the developer’s identity in a building with a new modernistic, industrially simplified, yet vivid architectural language.
The materials for the facade are zink and steel plates, oiled larch wood, industrially painted building boards and galvanized stretched metal.
