Kronborg Strand is a housing project where tower blocks turn and twist along the beach. This ensures attractive views from the city and down towards the beach – a view that is framed and enhanced by the Scandinavian-inspired timber houses with sloping roofs clad with black roofing felt. As an extra element, we incorporated ochre-coloured areas in the concrete inspired by the old dinghies in the area, which have sails in the same shades.

Between the houses, we established a lowered landscape, which with lyme grass and Scotch roses reflects its surroundings and enhances the connection to the beach. Here, you are always close to the light and the magnificent view, which is so characteristic of this place.
The total of 157 homes are distributed in 24 buildings and represent three types of houses: 'Strandvillaerne' (the beach villas), 'Strandhusene' (the beach houses) and 'Byhusene' (the city houses) with variations in each type. The beach villas are exclusive houses in two to three storeys and are primarily located in the first row with a panoramic view and daytime living spaces fronting the sea. In the next row lie beach villas as well as beach houses of varying heights, providing for exclusive and comfortable types of houses. With up to six storeys, the city houses are the highest of the three building types; multi-storey buildings with a view and sheltered terraces or balconies and they are also suitable for business purposes due to their size and location close to the city.
