“Haven is a public condenser with the ambition to change a social condition through architectural form and its contingency. Within a vision of networked public spaces to contrast urban-induced segregation in Copenhagen, the project aims to encourage social interactions by including broadly diverse recreational activities. It performs as a ‘sharing platform’, open to diverse organizations and individuals to maximize the use of space over time. Its unique circulation zone made of a sequence of platforms enhances accessibility, enables users to self-organize furniture and routing. Haven heralds the future of more collaborative and adaptable public spaces in urban contexts.”Abstract, Luca Fontana
The final outcome of this project utilizes a complete timber construction to create a multilevel building with diverse social programming in Copenhagen. Timber platforms are utilized to create shared spaces for relaxations as well as rooms for designated use and circulation.
