Hans Knudsens Square

Hans Knudsen’s Square is located on Østerbro in Copenhagen and encompasses an existing 3-floor building on which additional 4-floors of 4,805 m2 are built. When the project is done, it will consist of 133 student homes and 13 hotel apartments on the ground floor.

The project was originally designed with filigree slabs (half slabs) due to large diapraghm forces, but the contractor chose to shift to an SL-deck solution, which was able to handle the large forces, improve constructability and reduce both construction costs and time.
