Denmark-based urban planning and architecture practice Lendager Group have won a contest to build the UN17 Village, a residential community which incorporates all "17 of the United Nations' sustainable Development Goals".

The future 400-home complex, which is set to rise in Copenhagen – arguably the world’s most eco-friendly city – will be built with upcycled waste and nontoxic materials, such as glass, concrete, and wood.

According to Aarstiderne Arkitekter, who are co-designing the new structure, the village will use "100% renewable energy" and be able to collect 1.5m litres of rainwater per year.

Leisure amenities will include a communal bathhouse, sauna, spa, swimming pool, and gym.

Infrastructure, engineering, and project management oversight will be provided by ARUP Group, MOE Consultants, and Nordic Real Estate Partners.

Speaking on the development, Anders Lendager, CEO and founder of Lendager Group commented: "So far, the focus in sustainable buildings has mainly been on their operational carbon emissions.

"We are looking at the whole life cycle of the building – including materials use, health, and quality of life."

Initial planning for the UN17 Village is expected to be undertaken over the course of 2019.
