Enghavecentret is a renovation and energy-consumption optimisation project based in a residential complex in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The two original residential concrete apartment blocks, dating back to the 1970s, presented several challenges: structural flaws and an outdated building envelope which caused heath loss and consequential high-energy consumption.

The thorough renovation project wraps the existing building in a new high-insulating facade system, which maximises daylight and provides the dwelling with new spacious full-width private balconies.

A green rooftop garden is established between the buildings, creating a new communal outdoor space for the residents.

This project has been longlisted in the residential rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
