Rental homes in Ørestad South

Lavetten - architecture designed rental homes close to nature

Lavetten was constructed in 2019 and is designed by the award-winning architect Danielsen Architecture. The design is inspired by the classic inner-city areas of Copenhagen and appears in warm reddish-brown earthen colors. Lavetten is characterized by its unique, sloped architecture which is designed to facilitate an optimal flow of daylight into the large inner courtyard and at the same time provides a fantastic view for all of the 241 apartments in the property. Lavetten’s sloped roof creates a beautiful visual transition from the nature of Kalvebod Fælled to the property, where nature connects with the green roof and the gardens. The heart of the property is a large inner courtyard with plenty of room for play and exercise, but it also features several private zones where you can relax quietly.

Part of living history

Lavetten was named with inspiration from the area’s history, which from 1680-1956 was used as a military training ground. A “lavette” is the Danish word for a gun carriage used to hold cannons.
