Mountain Dwellings (Danish: Bjerget) is an award-winning building in the ├śrestad district of Copenhagen, Denmark, consisting of apartments above a multi-storey car park. The building is designed by Danish architectural practice Bjarke Ingels Group. The apartments are scaling the diagonally sloping roof of the parking garage, from street level to 11th floor, creating an artificial, southfacing 'mountainside'. Each apartment has a "backyard" on the roof of the in-front, lower-level apartment. The resulting courtyard panthouses are an attempt to balance "the splendours of the suburbian backyard with the intensity of an urban lifestyle". Throughout the building, it plays on a mountain metaphor as well as the clash between the urban vibe of the interior parking space as well as the surroundings and the peaceful and organic hillside
