The new central office for the Carlsberg Group is located in Carlsberg Byen,, in Copenhagen, where one of the three wings of the building forms a bridge over one of the quarter’s main access routes, J. C. Jacobsens Gade, while the other two wings embrace Carl Jacobsen’s historic garden and villa. This is where the brewery was established in Copenhagen and this area is now under transformation into a new vibrant quarter in Copenhagen that mixes offices, housing and green spaces.
The building’s central space, the atrium, opens onto Carl Jacobsen’s Garden overlooking Carlsberg Byen, where the long history of Carlsberg as a brewery business began and where it is still unfolding. The ground floor is open to customers and business partners, and with the atrium serving as a welcoming space, it is inviting and open to its surroundings. The atrium penetrates all the floors of the building, and around the atrium on each floor, there is a communal area where the company’s employees can meet.
The façade consists of large glass panels, that are rhythmically divided by vertical copper-covered slats. The building is a sustainable construction with durable solutions, built in natural materials with a long lifespan. The façade slats, for example, are coated with recycled copper and the building is built according to Copenhagen Municipality’s 2020 building class. Source and images Courtesy of C.F.
