Strong colours combined with shades of wood and earth are the pillars of the architecture of Greenlandic cities and towns. In a new residential building in Nuuk, Rockpanel façade cladding harmoniously plays together with climate, light and nature.
In Qinngorput, a suburb of Greenland’s capital city Nuuk, architectural firm Clement & Carlsen created a new elegant residential building with a naturally warm and harmonious appearance. The project consists of 48 homes spread over four identical towers.
Building in the beautiful but rough Greenlandic nature is quite a challenge. The architects chose Rockpanel façade cladding to meet the challenges of the tough weather conditions.
Architect Jane Carlsen is very happy with the result: “We are very pleased to see that the completed housing construction in Qinngorput matches exactly what we had in mind when we were drawing up our architect drawings. With the colourful Rockpanel facade cladding, we have succeeded in creating a building that combines tradition with innovation. It fits the climatic conditions and plays perfectly with the nature and light of Greenland."
