The preservation-listed gun boat sheds at Holmen are remodeled into an atmospheric setting for modern offices. The sheds were originally built by the Royal Danish Navy in 1830 to store its fleet of long gun boats. The aim of the renovation, which PLH undertook in 1998-2000, was to maintain the unique atmosphere and add a contemporary standard with carefully chosen materials and construction techniques.
The floors slope down towards the water with a total gradient of 1 meter and this theatrical composition contributes to giving the spaces a special mood, together with views over the water, long skylights and visible carpentry detailing. The project was awarded a prize in 2001 by the Municipality of Copenhagen.
