North House Copenhagen

:description

Four European Embassies in Central Copenhagen have joined forces and are moving into this new sustainable building in the future.

North House Copenhagen is a modern brick building resting on an expressive wood-clad base, signaling warmth, courtesy and openness towards the street.

The stacked brick body reflects timelessness, seriousness and heritage and is furthermore a classical architectural interpretation that beautifully adapts to the existing area.

 

The building makes way for a new passage through the city, connecting Amalienborg with Kongens Have, and all the cultural highlights in between.

The facade design is a direct result of the consistent, sustainable approach behind the project.

 

Besides adding character and beauty to the facade, the orientation of the repeated window boxes provides natural sunshade towards the South. The window elements open up towards the North allowing comfortable daylight into the office space.

The “green” mindset will in general dominate the whole concept of the building, from daylight calculations to local district cooling.

 

The immense roof terrace creates a much needed break in the cityscape and provides beautiful views over the historical city center.

We aim to use materials in accordance with Nordic traditions; Friendly, warm and inviting with a touch of exclusivity.

North House Copenhagen will surely stand out but at the same time blend in sympathetically with the surroundings.
