8 House: when homes and offices coexist in the same space
One of the mixed-use projects more interesting in Europe is located in Denmark: it is the 8 House, a set of 475 housing units designed in 2010 by BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group). In order to reactivate the area of Ørestad, a developing area in the city of Copenhagen, the 8 House includes 61,000 meters of constructed area in residential houses built on the top floors, and offices below merge with life on the street. A series of interconnected ramps provide access from the ground to the top of the building and even travel by bicycle throughout the building.
