The Lighthouse (Fyrtrnet) marks the entrance to the new residential area on Amerika Plads. With its 48 meters and 15 stories, the residential complex is also highly visible both from the city and from the water. Its design is also unusual. The tallest part has a distinctive stepped shape on the south, growing narrower toward the top, where it ends in two-story penthouses.
In addition to the tall tower, the complex consists of a six-story building with a common roof terrace. These two buildings hold 89 condos between 90 and 160 sq. m. Both the tower and its neighbor are covered with expanses of dark-gray slate, interrupted on the low building by large bays and balconies along Kalkbrænderihavnsgade. The choice fell on gray slate since it provides a varied play of color and at the same time harmonizes with the area's old brick buildings with slate roofs.
