Student Housing Proposal / CEBRA

In cooperation with engineers LB Consult, CEBRA recently won the competition for 48 new student housing units in Esbjerg, Denmark’s 5th largest city. The eye-catching proposal consists of 26,910 sq. ft. apartments spread across ten floors and outdoor areas with terraces and activity zones such as a street basket field. The project is commissioned by the housing association Ungdomsbo and they expect that the first students can move in in January 2014. More images and architects’ description after the break.

The building contains two basic functions: apartments – both for students and for young elitist sports practitioners – and common areas. The common areas are located at ground level, with direct access to the terraces and outdoor activities, and on the roof, with a spectacular view over the Danish Wadden Sea.

By placing the apartments between the two common areas, the building achieves a high level of flexibility and the housings can be reorganized freely, according to possible changing functional demands in the future.
