The Sydhavn Metro, Feasibility study and concept design

Gottlieb Paludan Architects designs five stations on a new Metro line serving the Sydhavn district of Copenhagen. We also conducted a feasibility study preceeding the decision to build a new branch of the Metro.

The new Metro line will run through the urban development areas of Enghave Brygge, Teglholmen and Sluseholmen together with the old district of Sydhavn (‘The Southern Harbour’) and terminate at the existing Ny Ellebjerg Station.

The decision to build the Sydhavn Metro was adopted by the Danish Parliament in February 2015. The new line is expected to be put into operation in 2024 and have a daily passenger flow of around 43,000 passengers.The Sydhavn Metro line will have stations at Fisketorvet, Enghave Brygge, Sluseholmen and Mozarts Plads, and at the terminal station, Ny Ellebjerg, it will be possible to change to regional and s-trains.

Gottlieb Paludan Architects’ services included architectural works and studies in connection with the urban integration of the new line as well as the principle design of the aprons and stations in a number of different scenarios.
