AARhus

Aarhus, Denmark

After the new apartment complex AARhus was built at the harbor of Aarhus Ø, two artists were tasked with decorating the entrances. The two artists chosen were Mormor and Daniel van der Noon. The owners of the building wanted to showcase cityscapes in different styles, and so Mormor and van der Noon were given different entrances to decorate in their own unique style.

Mormor cityscapes

Mormor’s whimsical style lends itself to a more playful cityscape, which he has created with a limited color palette to keep the look consistent and tie the murals together. Mormor has worked with the residents in each stairway, and included their stories and ideas into the murals, making each mural unique and co-created with the residents. There are many details to be found in the murals, and even Batman has managed to make an appearance.

Daniel van der Noon cityscapes

Daniel van der Noon strikes a fine balance between abstraction and details in his cityscapes. For this project, he chose to use strong colors and focus on landmarks. Each mural is different in terms of color but shares the same feel, tying the different murals together nicely.

Internationally renowned design team

AARhus was designed in collaboration between the internationally renowned Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and Gehl Architects. The building was their first visible result of this collaboration, but many more have since followed.
