On the border between Ørestad South and Kalvebod Fælled – exactly where the high dense city meets the flat open landscape – lies the block where both roof, yard and edge zones draw on values from the local area.
Until 1943, Kalvebod Fælled was under water, but the 20 km2 area was enclosed and nature – not least the bird life – took it quickly. For 40 years, it was military exercise boundary, but now everyone can move freely on the Fælled which today is part of the Amager Nature Park.
Kalvebod Fælled’s biggest attraction is the landscape: the flat beach common that lies flat with the sea’s surface. Sky and sea meet in a straight line on the horizon and there is mostly sky. It is a landscape of infinity until you spot Ørestad’s vertical new building with grazing cows, deer and horses in the foreground and Copenhagen’s towers in the background.
The roof terrace lifts you up above the town and the Fælled, so you get a complete experience of the view of the community. Here are small terraces, footpaths and lush multi-stemmed trees with white-flowering wild apples and red-fruited Swedish whitebeam. Pink capsules on Spindle trees and blue-black berries on Lithy tree, form small color explosions in dense scrubs, which at the same time create shelter.
