From the architect. Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter ApS won in 2004 the competition to convert Jægersborg Water Tower into a mixed-use building. On the upper floors, student housing units mark the perimeter of the existing structure. Each unit is expressed by a protruding crystal-like add-on that brings daylight into the apartment, and offers unobstructed views to the surrounding landscape.

Together, the crystals and the communal balconies add both a human scale, and a new sculptural layer, that emphasizes the landmark character of the tower. The lower floors are inhabited by a youth center, and contain several large multipurpose rooms. A combination of tall windows and colored panels create a varied pattern that surrounds the youth center. Large garage-style doors on the ground floor open up to extend the active indoor space into the outdoor playground.

Dear Sir ,
I am working on water supply as a major problem in my country, Ghana.Every day many homes experience water shortage. This has been going on for years without solutions.In my consultancy we think that the everlasting solution will be water tower construction as the one you have design on the internet.Thus ,i am writing to inquire about the cost of building one Water tower.we are working on 15 water towers in my region.The success of these towers will be extended to other region facing the same water crisis.
Thank you very much , hoping to hearing favorable from you.
Your sincere ,
Stephen.

Steven,

We have published only 4 projects from Dorte Mandrup. All very good works. But don´t worry, we will always publish new architects all the time. At least twice a day.

Dorte Mandrup makes nice work. But can't we see something else for a change? Why is the newsletter featuring the same architect for weeks?
