SHIP

At the most eastern point of the harbor in Aarhus, you find SHIP – a new exclusive housing and retail area of more than 24.000 m2. Here you can follow the yachts' many activities on land and at sea. To maintain an attractive area in the future, Milford delivered threshold channels around the buildings.

Smart rainwater management solves more problems in the cities

In the coming years, many larger cities have to come up with solutions for the challenges of increasing amounts of rainwater and more extreme weather. By implementing solutions that help protect densely populated and developed areas against flooding, the development of the square serves as an example to be followed when the rest of the city is to be climate-proofed. By actively making use of a city’s green areas in the fight against pollution and securing the city against cloudbursts, smart ways of handling rainwater solve a great deal of the problems, cities today are facing.

Water and architecture enrich each other

Arkitema Architects was responsible for the overall planning of SHIP, and they managed to let water and architecture enrich each other. Besides the stunning view from the balconies of the apartments towards the marina, the unique and wavy architectural style highlights the close relation to the harbor.

An attractive green, living area 

In addition to the sea, large and beautiful courtyards are made in the middle of the housing block – sheltered from the wind and filled with green oases and space for play and activities.  

Every part of the new area is made with high-quality materials to make SHIP as exclusive as possible and to maintain an attractive and recreational area far in the future.

Threshold channel for the buildings

The SHIP building is a new residential construction with stringent demands for stormwater diversion, aeration and level-free access as well as a minimum 150 mm free plinth height. We installed Canyon (Milford DK, NO, ENG), our threshold channel with an infiltration function, around the buildings to solve these requirements. 

The system provides optimal ventilation of the foundation while ensuring easy access for inspections and repairs. The channels are made of stainless steel – a long-lasting and robust material that can withstand wind and bad weather coming from the sea.

Accessible for everyone

The channel enables level-free access all around the building and to the terraces.  The gratings also meet all requirements for mesh size, making them suitable for guide dogs and wheelchair users.

From a universal design perspective, the new area SHIP is an easily accessible residential area where everyone can live.
