Aluthermo Case Studies

Urban rigger: floating student flats – Aluthermo

Floating student flats in Copenhagen, designed by the famous architect Bjarke Ingels (BIG) & Kim Loudrup (Urban Rigger /Udvikling Danmark).

The Urban Rigger is a complex of 6 containers that were transformed into student flats. The containers are insulated with our thin reflective insulation Aluthermo® Quattro to guarantee an optimal insulation without losing too much space.

The first complex was presented in September 2016 in Copenhagen and in the future a whole “student city” of these Urban Riggers will be built in Göteborg (SE).

Many others will follow.
