Vestersøhus was built in two phases in 1935 an 1939. The balcony was one of the 1930's main improvements in housing standards, and Vestersøhus shows a masterful integration and interlacing of balconies and bay-windows. Instead of attaching the balcony to the outside of the building, it is instead recessed to give a wider and more useable space, at the same time providing a large glazed corner window to the living room. The two top floors of the building have wider balconies spanning two bays, to create roof-terraces. Altogether this creates a rythmical, varied composition which modulates the almost 500 metre facade and gives the whole block a sculptural appearance.
