In 2007 PLH delivered the most convincing concept for a new sustainable ice skating rink in Ryparken Sports Centre. The new ice skating rink was to replace the former Østerbro Ice Skating Rink.
In keeping with Copenhagen’s environmental initiatives, the City of Copenhagen earmarked the project as a prototype for green buildings in the capital. Consequently, the City stipulated that the new ice rink must meet their requirement for a 25 % reduction in energy consumption compared to traditional skating rinks. Energy optimization then became the catalyst for the design concept: a building with a simple and distinctive profile in the form of a sloping facade to provide the optimal angle for integrated solar installations. The premise behind this design solution was to integrate energy, construction and architecture in a single, sharp concept.
