The Sommerlyst project, located on Holmbladsgade, Copenhagen, offers twenty-eight units of social housing. The house enjoys a vivid landscape of roof terraces and balconies, which also provide access to the housing units themselves. This creates a safe and socially well-functioning environment for its inhabitants. The units are large family houses – partly duplex housing units with double-height spaces and four rooms. The ground floor to the main street offers two business areas suitable for cafes, restaurants or office spaces, with the façade to the minor Geislersgade featuring small front gardens and small-scale, terrace house typologies. The brick facades fit well into the context of classic Copenhagen housing blocks.
