The idea behind the Inner Nordhavn is for the small islands and canals to be preserved in order to pass on the identity and culture of the harbour. Concurrent, the project has the ambition that Nordhavn becomes an eco-friendly city with sustainable energy, new energy sources, optimal resource utilisation as well as eco-friendly forms of transportation. The special about Nordhavn is that, apart from the environmental initiatives, the project is also concerned with social sustainability, value creation and diversity.
Nordhavn’s Århusgadekvarter was the first neighbourhood ever to receive the first prize in the DGNB certification.
