Environmental and social sustainability have always been at the heart of Vandkunsten Architects’ work. Hence, it
is perhaps unsurprising that two of the firm’s most recent projects see existing constructions reused and transformed into housing that challenges restrictive social norms for what a home is. The first project has turned features from a worn-down military building into distinct aesthetic qualities of a new student housing complex while the second experiments with preconceptions of living spaces in small, portable and attractive container homes.
