Islands Brygge is the home to three old silos that have undergone a serious makeover which has resulted in new, modern apartments.
The silos were previously a part of Sojakagefabrikken, but the old buildings are now rebuilded to an apartment building with 84 apartments between 90 and 200 m².
The apartments are placed outside the silos. They have glass walls and wide balconies, which gives them a maximal view over the city and the harbour.
The Gemini Residence can be reached by the Brygge Bridge (Bryggebroen).
Brygge Bridge was the first bridge over the harbour in Copenhagen in 50 years. It connects Havneholmen to Islands Brygge and is part of Copenhagens system of walking and biking paths.
Brygge Bridge was built in 2006 and is 190 meters long and 5,5 meters wide. It's right behind Fisketorvet on Kalvebod Brygge and goes all the way to the other side near Gemini Residence on Islands Brygge.
The bridge is reserved for cyclists and pedestrians and provides a shortcut, especially for students at Copenhagen University Amager and the IT-University in Ørestad.
Brygge Bridge has integrated lighting in the handrails and the underside is being lit up by luminaires built in the tires.
