Known for its architecture, the VM Bjerget is an award winning building in Copenhagen. The name of the building translates to ‘Mountain Dwellings’ and was designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and completed by 2008. The building covers an area of 33,000 square metres and resembles a triangular structure with a section that peers above a concrete triangular structure.
The interiors have a burst of colour and have minimal urban ambience. From a particular point, the building resembles a mountain with the its tip peeping above the structure. After dark, the whole place comes to life to add a pop of colour and elegance to the skyline of Copenhagen. The protruding glass feature, adds an edgy elements to the structure.
Take a walk here to feel inspired by the open spaces and to see the creative use of glass, lines and symmetry.

The Mountain is a modern ten-storey ‘housing mountain’ with eighty apartments and personal roof gardens that sprawl down the 'mountain'side. As the name indicates, the new building is a modern ten-level 'housing mountain' located immediately next to the VM Buildings and the elevated Metro tracks. The Mountain has two functions: housing and parking. There are 80 housing units ranging from 80 to 150 square metres in size. All the units have large roof terraces that sprawl down the 'mountain' like small gardens. There is room for 650 cars inside the Mountain, which means that in bad weather residents can go directly from their cars to their apartments without getting wet.
A beautiful example of modern Scandinavian architecture. Glass, wood, metal and gardens. If you can handle nine flights of stairs then a must do is the walk around the outside stairs.
State of the art archictecture. Although you should view from above to fully comprehend and appreciate it.
Wow, well done Bjarke ingels
