PLH Arkitekter helps Illums Bolighus move into Lyngby Storcenter

Design enthusiasts now have yet another reason to visit Lyngby Storcenter, as furniture retailer Illums Bolighus has opened a massive store spread over three floors.

PLH Arkitekter has once again left its mark on a shopping center with a major renovation of Lyngby Storcenter, just north of Copenhagen. Improving access ways and making room for Illums Bolighus' second largest store, the project is the first in a series of modernizations of the center.

With the renovation of the 3,800 square meter flagship store, PLH Arkitekter has helped to support the center's goal of offering more and better customer experiences.

"We are very happy to contribute to the continued development of Lyngby Storcenter with our great expertise in retail and center design. Illums Bolighus will be a major and central attraction, which is why we have worked, among other things, to create a natural integration with the rest of the center, as well as improving the customer experiences and infrastructure so that there is now a direct connection from the parking garages to the center and Illums Bolighus," says Jesper Spager, senior project manager at PLH Arkitekter.

The renovation of Lyngby Storcenter has been done in close collaboration with the client Danske Shoppingcentre, JDN Entreprise, Ramboll and DEAS.

This is far from the first time that PLH Arkitekter has given shopping centers new life, surroundings, and experiences. The studio has previously worked on Waves in Hundige and Galleri K in Copenhagen.

After a major renovation, Copenhagen’s Amager Center officially re-opened its doors in 2020. Here, PLH Arkitekter transformed the previously closed building into an open and modern center with new features including a green courtyard, natural light, intimate, cozy areas for café life and local meeting places for the area's residents.

In Lithuania, PLH Arkitekter has also transformed the interior of an old city hall into a modern shopping center, and the studio has designed two new, innovative e-commerce hubs scheduled to open in the coming years.
