Nordlyset (Northern Lights) is a sculptural residential block with an expressive facade, located in the new urban quarter around Amerika Plads in Copenhagen. The development takes the form of a white-plastered block surrounding an interior outdoor courtyard. The facade line is broken to the north and south, giving the building an organic expression, while the bright and friendly-looking apartments enjoy a view of the Sound. The details emphasise the overall expression, with coloured glass panels in a bright striped pattern, designed in co-operation with the visual artist Ruth Campau. The glass panels divide off the balconies, and are also utilised in the block’s entry areas.
