PLH participated in an invited competition for the construction of an office building in Ørestad, Copenhagen .

It was both a form and urban challenge to place a 50,000 m2 structure in an existing urban space with neighbor buildings of very different scale. The intense building plot ratio and the local plan requirements, dominated the massing of the complex’s basic form.

The concept of the design was to make small movements and breaks in the form. This allows variation and transitions to the surrounding buildings, by angling the facades and terracing the floors so the volume becomes a “greens cape” towards the low residential buildings.
