Architects loft room in appartment by "B.I.G. architects" in Ørestaden
Here is your unique chance to stay in an architectural icon in Copenhagen, designed by the world famous B.I.G. studio.
I’m a frequent traveller, and when in Copenhagen I offer up an open room in my spacey and contemporary apartment on the 6th floor (The apartment is in three levels) close to Ørestad/Bella Center Metro station.
The apartment is ”open plan” or New York loft style, with windows from floor to ceiling. Light is pouring in from sunset to sundown. The top room accomodates 2 people – I will be staying at the lower level - the middle level (entry level) consists of a living room and kitchen in open plan.
UPPER LEVEL: Queen size futon (140 x 200) directly on the floor japanese style. All duvets and bedding is of Oeko-Tex standard of the highest quality. You also have a choice of a double duvet or two separate duvets. Please note that this room is on it's own top level but in open connection with the middle level - there is no door to close (part of the architectural, open concept of my apartment). While you stay with me, I will be as discreet as possible, staying behind closed doors downstairs.
My guests has free access to the bath room at the lower level, a large and spacy kitchen, with an eating place for 4-6 persons directly in front of the balcony. I offer facilities such as wireless Internet and I have a large collection of music (CD’s on the upper level), and DVDs (middle level). Plenty to keep you entertained on a rainy day in Copenhagen ;-). For those with a graphic interest I have a big collection of graphic novels downstairs. I will of course provide towels as well, and you have free use of washing machine + dryer.
THE AREA : The apartment is only a few minutes walk from the metro, which is operating 24 hours every day of the week. Ørestaden is a newly developed area with a huge shopping centre (Field’s) and the protected natural area Amager Common is right at my doorstep making the area ideal for jogging/blading. The area consists of some of the most interesting contemporary architecture in Copenhagen. Also the metro connects you with central Copenhagen in 10 minutes 24-7.
HOW TO GET THERE:
From the airport:
Take the train to ØRESTAD station (2 zones – 2 stops) and walk 5-10 minutes to my doorstep
From the Central Station:
Take the train to ØRESTAD station (2 zones – 1 stop) and walk 5-10 minutes to my doorstep
How to get around: You have the option to use the Metro station BELLA CENTER or the Train station ØRESTED to get easily to any place in Copenhagen or Sweden. Both stations are within a short walking distance. Also you can rent bikes cheaply, and Copenhagen is great for biking with bike lanes eveywhere. I yself bike to and from work every day.
I look forward to be your host throughout your visit to Copenhagen. I appreciate people of all colours and sizes and will be happy to help you make your stay in Copenhagen memorable. Don’t hesitate to email me your questions or special requests.
Regards from Søren
The bathroom is right next to your room.
The kitchen, which I invite you to use, is upstairs.
Feel free to feel completely at home
Interaction with Guests
I travel extensively (It's my greatest passion) but when I'm home I go out of my way to give my guests the best stay in Copenhagen by providing maps and advice about my beautiful city. Some guests like privacy, and I will always respect that, but I'm always here if you need me.
It's an architectural oasis surrounded by nature and within easy access to downtown via the 24 hour metro system. You get the best of two worlds. Great for running. Great for kids (the city park is full of little playgrounds). Great for lovers of unique architecture
The metro system runs every 2-5 minutes. 24-7!
The train system connects you to the Airport - and then Sweden - on one side and the Copenhagen Central station (one stop only) in the other direction. It's a convenient base for exploring the entire region.
You will be living in a contemporary apartment, where the entire facade is made of glass. It is important that you hook the windows, when you open them, so that the wind won't catch them and smash them against the facade.
Another important thing is to close all windows when you leave - you never know if it is gonna rain in Denmark, and water damage is to be avoided :-). You are welcome to leave the balcony door hooked, if you want the apartment freshly aired while you are out.
I relay like the place , it is clean and the chick in and out were easy .
Place near to a big mall and the metro station just 300 m

About the Host, Søren
Danish architect into travelling and most things to do with art
Travelling is a way of life for me and apart from Denmark I have lived in the UK (London), Holland (Rotterdam), Germany (Berlin) and Canada (Toronto). I have travelled more or less all over the world - it has been my most important education.
I guess my travels have helped me be a person without predudice (unless you're a Nazi!!!) and I generally enjoy påeople who are different from me.
My friends would probably characterise me as stubborn but reliable, open minded but with strong personal beliefs and friendly to the point of being annoying. I love a good challenge.
If you are into the arts, I pretty much guarantee that I'll be able to tell you more or less everything arty that is going on in this beautiful city of Copenhagen. Don't hesitate to ask, and I will do everything to help you plan your stay here.
