Urban oasis: Eco-village brings sense of community to city

05 : 08 : 2010 Bjarke Ingels : Bjarke Ingels Group : 8 Tallet

Ørestad, Denmark – An eco-village is improving the urban environment by creating an individual neighbourhood.

Designed by architect firm Bjarke Ingels Group, the 8 Tallet development is localising services for its residences in its 476 apartments.

Some of the development’s features include gardens designed to reduce the urban heat island effect, while an east-west orientation provides plenty of daylight. 8 Tallet also has a green roof, a commercial square and communal areas. For more on how urban dwellers are reconnecting with notions of community, read our Rurban design report.
