Thurøhus is a new apartment building located on Thurøvej - a unique location in the dense city fabric of Frederiksberg, Copenhagen. Thurøhus is a reinterpretation of the typical Frederiksberg perimeter block, referencing the existing historical surroundings in materials and details, but at the same time offering a new interpretation and rejuvenation of the typology.
The design follows the same logic as the traditional town house hierarchy, in terms of plot ratio, height and depth, while a tapered backside and the large tilted roof surfaces, mimics the opposing volume of the neighbouring church, Godthåbskirken.
The volume is set back from the road allowing for a small front yard softening the division of public and private zones, and a trichotomy breaks down the volume into three smaller sections and allows for variation in the apartment typologies.
