Nordlyset (Northern Lights) is the first residential block completed in the new Amerika Plads neighbourhood north of the centre of Copenhagen, at the Port. It is a taut, white-rendered block, where balconies and gates have been ’hewn’ out of the heavy form which they are instrumental in softening. In so doing, Nordlyset is intended to contribute to the impression of a compact neighbourhood, in which the streets are narrow and the buildings solid and weighty, but different. The residential block houses rented and owner-occupied apartments, and the lower floor will accommodate either shops or smallish youth dwellings. Ruth Campau contributed to the glass surfaces throughout the building. The artist’s brushstrokes have been rendered into a striped pattern, for example, in the entranceways and around the lifts. From the outside, the patterns can be clearly made out on some double-glazed plating fitted perpendicularly to the facade and acting as dividing walls between two balconies.
