Sluseholmen is an artificial peninsula in the south harbour of Copenhagen. It used to be dominated by heavy industry, including a car factory. As industry left the area, a plan was conceived to develop Sluseholmen into a canal district.

The design is inspired by the Dutch model with channels running between the blocks. This was the result of co-operation between the Dutch architect Sjoerd Soeters, the Port of Copenhagen and the City of Copenhagen.

Sluseholmen consists of eight housing islands, with large and small town houses standing side by side, forming continuous blocks.

1,800 apartments are served by an Envac vacuum waste collection system.
