A Tailormade Multi-media Building
The multimedia building on Havneholmen is tailored from the inside out to fit the needs of its island location and users, CAE and Aller Media. With its gently curved triangular form, the building delineates the point of Havneholmen that projects out into The Copenhagen harbor, and is surrounded by water on both sides. CAE and Aller Media, which previously had their main address in Valby, chose to consolidate its many activities and publications in the new multimedia headquarters, to create an efficient and diverse work environment. The building itself has created value for Aller Media's brand and marketing activities, and the atrium is often used for events. The building has been meticulously designed from the overall architectural lines down to the detailed interior design, leading the City of Copenhagen’s award committee to call the building a "gesamtkunstverk" (work of art).
The Aller Building is featured as an example of 'value creating architecture' in the publication 'Architecture that Creates Value' (pages 12-14) prepared by The Danish Architecture Center for The Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces and Realdania, published December 2016.
Likewise, The Danish Association of Architectural Firms features The Aller Building in their collection of value creating architecture (in Danish).
