Have a look inside the iconic A-House in Islands Brygge. From the award-winning building, you can enjoy a fantastic view of Copenhagen Harbor and experience New York-style lofts brimming with culture.

From the street, it may be difficult to see how A-House got its name. But when you look down on Copenhagen from the top of the building, the connection is immediately clear. The southern part of Islands Brygge is clearly shaped as an “A”. And when you step inside, the high ceilings and huge windows let in plenty of light while the beautiful harbor view unfolds below.

A-House was designed by architect Thorvald Dreyer and built in 1960, but it wasn’t until later that it was modernized and converted into apartments. In 2010, A-House was named best restoration by the City of Copenhagen, and that same year it was nominated best restoration at the World Architecture Festival.

From Artist Collective to Unique New York-style Lofts

In the past, A-House has provided workers from the nearby soy cake factory a roof over their heads, served as offices for the postal services, and housed sound studios for the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. Later, the building hosted an artist collective, and today it still displays evidence of that inspiring time when creatives such as artist Tal R, musician Anders Trentemøller and designer Henrik Vibskov lived and worked there. Today, A-House has been transformed into 195 rentals in the form of New York-style lofts.

Have a Look Inside A-House

During Open House, you can have a look inside the iconic A-House, when the doors are opened to one of the property’s New York-style lofts. You’ll have the chance to view the city from the building that was once home to the studio of renowned Danish artist Tal R and breathe in the culture that abounds in the building.
