As urbanization continues to increase at a mind-numbing pace, inner-city recreation areas have begun to feel like nothing more than an afterthought; a forgotten piece of a much grander puzzle. Sure, modernized parks and social areas are a viable inclusion that isn’t pushed to the wayside entirely by contractors and city supervisors, but with Marshall Blecher and Magnus Maarbjerg’s ‘Copenhagen Islands’ project, the uncanny utilization of space has become a figurative centerpiece.

Copenhagen’s harbor has been recognized by the city as a viable area to create an alternative social experience, calling upon designers Marshal Blecher and Magnus Maarbjerg to find new and exciting ways to make use of the acreage. To catalyze life and activity atop the harbor’s water, the pair have decided to employ CPH-Ø1, CPH-Ø2, and Ø3, a suite of hand-made wooden platforms with linden trees at their center, to create floating, public spaces for the city’s denizens to explore and socialize. Each movable platform can act as a swim zone, a floating sauna, or floating garden, allowing friends and family to meet and interact with one another after reaching the small, secluded structure by boat. Head to the company’s website to learn more about the designers’ most recent project.
