VM Houses is a housing project consisting of two adjacent apartment buildings in Ørestad, Copenhagen, Denmark. Designed by JDS Architects and Bjarke Ingels Group, the M House with 95 units was completed in 2004, and the V House with 114 units, in 2005. The V building is rounded off by a sloping roof that goes up from six to twelve levels from east to west. In sharp contrast, the M volume is topped by a flat roof that is stepped at four specific points, descending from eleven to five levels, and with one single-story volume housing a kindergarten that is an extension of the intermediate section of the block towards the west. The facades of both blocks follow a deceptively random scheme consisting of large glazed openings with jatoba frames, a scheme that is the consequence of the great diversity of housing typologies. One of the most striking features of the complex occurs in the V volume, where a series of balconies are projected in the shape of sharp triangles attached to the structure with stretchers.
