ABOUT BIRKEN

Birken – the best of the suburbs meets the best of the city

Welcome to Birken. Here, you’ll live in green and sustainable fashion. Close to nature, but without giving up any of the communities and activities offered by the city. Choose from 217 brand new rental homes of 53-110 square meters with 2-5 rooms. Constructed and decorated in accordance with the newest standards of sustainability.

You’ll get your own private space outside, either on a nice balcony or a terrace, if you live on the ground floor. There’s always life and activities in the common areas, where you’ll find playgrounds, an outdoor kitchen, and a beautiful, big orangery.

If you have children, you’ll appreciate the local institutions. One of them is Læringshuset, Nærheden – one of the most modern schools in the country and the next-door neighbour to Birken. The newly constructed footbridge over the railway tracks allows for quick access to sports and cultural facilities, an urban atmosphere, and shopping in Hedehusene. You can also get to both Roskilde and Copenhagen K by train in a matter of minutes. If you’re driving yourself, you can enjoy Birken’s free parking facilities.

You’re not going to miss the city. Rather, you’ll feel blessed to have easy access to wonderful open areas of nature.

THE APARTMENTS

The joy of a new home

In Birken you’ll get a new home that fits your needs. You’ll get all the comfort and functional decoration you’d expect from a modern home. Light, air, and beautiful surroundings that you can enjoy by yourself and share with family and friends when they come to visit.

Birken offers several types of apartments of sizes between 53-110 square meters and 2-5 rooms. Regardless of which apartment type you prefer, you’ll get well-designed rooms with heated wooden floors and great circulation.

The kitchen is a white Svanekøkken with spacious cupboards, integrated fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher, oven, and induction hob of the best energy class from Siemens.

The same goes for the washing machine and dryer in the bathroom, which is also equipped with items from Svane and Grohe. Enjoy a lovely rain shower in the shower cabin, and appreciate the wall hung toilet that makes cleaning both easy and convenient.

Experience the joy of living in a brand-new home that meets all the latest standards for comfort and sustainability.

THE ARCHITECTURE

Open, bright and friendly like a birch tree

Birken is the Danish word for birch. A birch tree can be enormous. Yet, it never seems intimidating or dominating. The tree’s bark plays with light and darkness in a way that almost camouflages its size. The small and dainty leaves form an open crown, swaying in the wind and graciously embracing the sunlight. You’ll never get tired of watching a birch tree.

THE ARCHITECTURE

Open, bright and friendly like a birch tree

Birken is a rather large apartment complex. Still, Årstiderne Architects have allowed many of the tree’s characteristic features to be reflected in the building. This means that Birken expresses many different things – exemplified by the building’s transition from 6 to 4 floors. The facades are disrupted by 1-3 m. displacements, and two different types of red bricks are used to create a variation between light and dark surfaces. On the gables, selected bricks stick out 2 cm. to give rise to a pattern of light and shadows. All of the above ensures that Birken always seems hospitable and welcoming rather than clumsy and heavy.

THE ARCHITECTURE

Open, bright and friendly like a birch tree

Birken is divided into two buildings, each of which has its own recreational garden space. The Northern building is designed as a U-shape, while the Southern building has open corners to improve cohesiveness and access to the inner garden spaces.

The garden spaces are populated with a rich selection of trees, fruit trees, and bushes. They’ll be intersected by natural walking paths, swerving around areas for community, nature, and play. There are playgrounds, kitchen gardens, and orangeries, allowing the community between everyone, whether big or small, to unfold.

Under the Northern garden space, Birken’s massive car park is hidden. Here you’ll find free parking, electric car chargers, and an area for bicycle parking. You have direct access from the car park to the green garden space.

THE AREA

Nærheden – a new suburb

Birken is a part of a brand-new neighbourhood being developed in the coming years near Hedehusene. The new suburb is called Nærheden and will be developed with the purpose of improving the local quality of life based on values like sustainability, community, and easy and safe living.

Everything you’ll need is literally nearby. Employers, institutions, a brand-new school, sports facilities, cultural sights, shopping, a train station, safe traffic conditions, and free parking facilities for the local residents. All of it is right here.

Nærheden is also a neighbourhood with close connections to nature. The entire area is encircled by a green belt with blue lakes called the Loop. Perfect place for a walk or a run. Here, you can go fishing, study birds, collect herbs, or go for a picnic. Not far from here, you’ll find Hedeland Nature Park, which offers both marvellous nature and a range of exciting activities, including a golf course, a nature playground, and Denmark’s longest ski slope.
