Anyone who watched Channel 4’s Scandimania is probably as in love as I am with the amazing 8 House in Denmark, designed by the Bjarke Ingels Group

This landmark building in the shape of the number 8 houses over 540 units for different configurations (single or family, young and elders, growing or shrinking families), mixed with commerce and community facilities. There is a cycle path that winds all the way up from the street up to its 10th level penthouses alongside terraced gardens.

To me, the crisp Danish design of the homes, central communal garden and the dipped edge that reveals far-reaching views make the 8 House seem a 
beautiful place to live.
