Tomorrow’s island

Refshaleøen is an artificial island with a rich industrial heritage just a short ride from the centre of Copenhagen. Today, we’re transforming the historical shipyard into a vibrant new destination.


Our goal is to create an area fit for tomorrow’s urban challenges that expands our notion of what life in the city can be. By curating and developing sincere urban experiences, we seek to enrich personal lives and communities while embracing the complexity of societal change.

We collaborate with a diverse network of forward-thinking partners to deliver a positive impact on the Copenhagen region. Our hope is that the culture we establish today will inspire and influence the district we’re developing tomorrow.

Lasting coherence with society

As we stare into a future of great urban change, the city of tomorrow won’t resemble the cities we inhabit today. Our cities will become home to far more people, and increasing calls for environmental action along with an ever-evolving landscape of architecture and technology will change the face of urban life as we know it.



We believe that future developments require coherence with society’s needs. We embrace close collaboration with both regional and national politicians so that the progress of Refshaleøen is aligned with societal aspirations. As a consequence, we’re featured in several ongoing development plans for the Copenhagen Region.

We envision Refshaleøen as an integral part of the overall vision for Copenhagen, striving to continuously improve the quality of its citizens’ lives while generating growth for the entire region.

Even though we insist on progress, our area is not without history.

Refshaleøen builds on a proud and long industrial history based on the now-defunct shipyard Burmeister and Wain (B&W).

For more than a hundred years, Refshaleøen was home to the former international company.

The industrial heritage holds a strong presence even today, and we’re repurposing the monumental structures into new projects to continue their rich history.
