The Light House (or Light*house), is a residential project under construction in Aarhus Docklands, the new harbour front district of Aarhus, Denmark.

The project was originally divided in 2 stages, but due to financial problems, the first stage was sub-divided in 2 stages. Stage 1 is complete, while Stage 2 is expected to be completed by 2014. The Light House tower (stage 3), will be 142 m tall, making it the tallest building in Denmark.
