Humlebyen │ Folk Arkitekter │ [19 Architecture Photographies Denmark]

Renovation project at Humlebyen next to Carlsberg byen, by Folk Arkitekter.

At Carlsberg Byen there is a small area called Humlebyen. Folk Arkitekter renovated a three story house there with beautiful results. The cozy atmosphere is immediately to notice, when entering the home. The wooden elements, are kept from the originale building and with its narrow entrance, it fits the areas concept. The kitchen area is made open and large enough, for a family with kids and is separated to the livingroom with French-doors. The stairway is kept in original form, wish only attributes to the homes charm.

Humlebyen was built for shipyard workers at B&W back in 1884-95. Today, it is a very attractive area for families to live in, having the close relationship to have a house and live inside the city, makes the area, a highly popular place to live in Copenhagen. Humleby represents a settlement form of considerable cultural historical interest and, with its narrow roads and small proprietors, represents a very appealing cityscape. And to it’s benefit,  it’s also a place next to Carlsberg Byen, wish is going through a cultural development, where the surroundings  are newly build architectural structures and different kinds of artists are housing there.

The seven inner streets, in Humlebyen, are named after golden age painters and sculptors like Lundbye and Bissen. It’s absolutely a area to visit and go through, when in Copenhagen, the shift in coming fro busy roads to a calm and quieter atmosphere, is notable and appreciated.
