Henning Larsen completes flats after seven-year hitch

The Wave in Vejle, Denmark, by Henning Larsen

The Wave was a victim of the global financial crisis

Henning Larsen has completed a block of flats that took 11 years to build after the global economy collapsed during construction.

The Wave is five blocks of 100 flats shaped like a series of waves beside a fjord in Vejle, Denmark. The project also includes a public pier.

Construction work started on the 14,000sq m scheme in 2006 but work ground to a halt after the first two towers were completed in 2008, a victim of the global financial crisis.
