About the Project
The apartments are adapted for a new and growing group - study friends. The relationship with the traditional corridor housing is clear. The bedrooms of the apartments are in focus and have been developed to cope with night sleep as well as studies and visits. The bedrooms, which in the individual apartment are usually equal, measure about 10 sqm. The common features for entrance, kitchen and bath have been gathered in a limited but effective area of the apartment.
The result at Magazine 15 is shared apartments for mostly two but sometimes also for three or four friends. Common to all apartments at Magazine 15 is that only one in each apartment is a tenant and that the others are residents.
In total, Magazine 15 offers no less than eleven apartment variations. The 13 two-bedroom apartments with sleeping loft under the slope at level seven, they may offer the most exciting floor plans.
In the other rooms there are communal balconies, apartment facilities and laundry facilities. On the ground floor there is also a large interior bicycle parking with a personal bicycle rack for each accommodation in the house. Between the house bodies, a pleasant outdoor environment is provided with the obligatory barbecue area in the student context.
