Innovative and dynamic HQ
Nykredit’s new HQ have been design with a focus on creating a coherent and dynamic building that opens up towards the city and the local area. At the same time the HQ are designed with a great signal value. The building, to be placed on the southern part of the site, is shaped as a six-floor double comb structure divided in 5 office wings. It is a classical, timeless example of northern architecture where brick tiles are the main façade material.
The comb structure of the building is the framework around Nykredit’s different building zones and office wings. The essence is a very clear structure with a manageable visual connection and a logical zonation in the interior.
Atrium connects and creates circulation
In the centre of the building, the floors are connected by an atrium creating a clear structure, circulation and a manageable visual connection across the floors. Here, employees and visitors can move around without disturbing the workstations because most of them are placed in quiet zones close to the facades. This placement also gives employees the best possible lighting conditions and the best view of the surroundings. In the layout of a typical office floor the primary working zone is placed in the wing – designed as an open, activity based workplace design with standard workstations, project areas, focussed workstations and touchdowns supplemented with informal meeting areas and private meeting boxes.
