Our purpose is to improve the quality of life through design that creates identity. This could be at home, at work, at school, in the city, in nature, at the station – anywhere people gather in the built environment or use objects of design.

PLH Architects is a Danish architectural practice based in Copenhagen. We create architecture worldwide, designing office buildings, cultural buildings, residential buildings and creating workplace design and urban planning solutions, infrastructure, retail and healthcare architecture.

What role does architecture play in creating a unique hotel experience? In the heart of Copenhagen, centrally located at Nørreport Station, we have designed a thorough renovation of a century-old building, where @scandichotels has now opened its ninth hotel in the Danish capital. With respect for the property's history, character and surrounding architecture, the building has been transformed from an office into a welcoming, modern destination with unique rooms, a restaurant, rooftop bar and public roof terrace. “The work with Scandic Nørreport has been complex but at the same time incredibly exciting and rewarding. We have continually been reminded of the building’s history, which has appeared behind every wall and under every floor. Thanks to the good collaboration with our partners, we have, instead of tearing it down, given the building new life and created a contemporary environment built around the historical framework,” says Peter Rebild, project architect at PLH Arkitekter. In the construction process and the transformation into a state-of-the-art hotel, ambitious sustainability requirements have been set. Scandic Nørreport will thus be the first Danish hotel to be certified according to the Nordic Ecolabel's new stricter requirements, where there is a special focus on minimal climate impact. Furthermore, the thorough renovation is expected to be receive the sustainability certification DGNB Silver by Green Building Council Denmark Team: Client: @atpejendomme Tenant: @scandichotels Engineer: @moeconsultingengineers Management contractor : MBG Entreprise Interior designer: @bonnelyckemdd @svanemaerket #architecture #architecturelovers #archdaily #design #danishdesign #danisharchitecture #scandinaviandesign #scandinavianarchitecture #hoteldesign #hoteldesigner #copenhagen #denmark #scandic #scandichotels #hotel #boutiquehotel #holiday #tourist #getaway #rooftopbar #rooftop #skybar #restaurant #hotelroom #sustainability #svanemærket #PLHArkitekter

Are you planning on becoming a journalist or working with media and communication? Then we have good news for you. The future Danish School of Media and Journalism, @dmjx, in Copenhagen succeeds in combining consideration for the climate while also delivering on the well-being of its users. A state-of-the-art educational hub, the new DMJX features sustainable solutions that reduce CO2 emissions and minimize energy consumption. Consequently, the building is expected to achieve a DGNB Gold sustainability certification. Furthermore, the well-being of the building's 800 full-time students, 2,000 course participants and 70 employees has played a key role. During the design phase, special emphasis has been put on air quality, acoustics, visual environment and thermal indoor climate. “DMJX is an ambitious project that focuses both on the big picture environmental impact as well as the wants and needs of the people inside the building. These are two fundamental parameters for what PLH Arkitekter designs. By drawing on our expertise, in this project we are able to showcase our core philosophy, namely that consideration for the climate and the individual user not only go and in hand, but are in fact each other's prerequisites in good architecture,” says Anette Grønbæk, Sustainability Manager at PLH Arkitekter.
