AN URBAN OASIS
For almost 300 years, the island has housed a series of important functions for the city: from shipyard, to military hospital, to arsenal, to warehouses for coal and paper. Most Copenhageners remember the paper warehouses, and it is these that have provided Christiansholm with its name today: THE PAPER ISLAND.
It is only in recent years, that Copenhageners have had access to this island at the heart of the city’s harbour. The first initiative, a temporary food-market was a resounding success. Having remained inaccessible for almost 300 years, used only by the navy, industry and harbour traffic, THE PAPER ISLAND has now become a cultural centre and popular hangout for locals and tourists alike.
In the years to come, the island will enter the next chapter of its story, becoming a new urban district, accommodating pioneering architecture, a water culture centre, an international hotel, a food hall, housing and cultural hotspots. A promenade along the waterfront will surround the neighbourhood with a wide range of leisure functions.
The island is positioned on a new axis of urban experiences, gastronomy and culture, connecting the classic style of central Copenhagen with new activities on Holmen and Refshaleøen.
THE PAPER ISLAND will be a new urban oasis offering an attractive combination of culture, innovative gastronomy and recreational activities, all in close proximity to the water.
