The main housing typology of Copenhagen - like many other european cities - is the courtyard building. A quick nolli map-study of the city reveals that this is where most of the free space is and where most of the potential lays to densify - from within.
The modules are constructed off site and are easily transported and assembled on site. Each element is 6x6m wide and 3m tall. The length is derived both from a functional plan and the maximum economical span of the RIPA floor elements. The façade is load bearing, made of XL Kerto LVL Q wall elements.

Needless to say the ecological values from using wood as the main building material is significant. Furthermore, the thick insulation in the wall elements results in the need to use less energy to heat the dwellings, suitable also for a colder environment. Finally, the fact that the construction is made off-site will shorten the building time, leading to an overall beneficial ecological impact.
