Buildings in Denmark
We've selected what we feel are the key examples of Danish Buildings. We aim to include buildings that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.
We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Denmark. The focus is on contemporary Danish buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

Key Danish Building Designs, arranged chronologically:

Henning Larsen Architects

The Wave in Vejle is a new unique housing and with its sculptural and organic forms it will become the new landmark of Vejle. With the magnificent location overlooking the promenade and the bay the characteristic building both respects and challenges the potential of the area. During the day the white waves are reflected in the sea and at night the characteristic profile will look like illuminated multi-coloured mountains. The building has 140 attractive apartments many with two-story house plans, all with a wonderful view.

Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects

When Carlsberg Brewery moved production from Hellerup, just north of Copenhagen, it gave the city an opportunity to develop a new part of town containing harbours and canals, yacht clubs, housing and offices. adjutant to the sea of Oresund. The Tuborg Waves office complex will be a part of this new town. Situated alongside one of the main boulevards in the area, the office complex, are shaped as three seven storey office blocks, creating a rhythm in movement towards the sea.

The building complex is a concept of individual buildings, creating a special place around a courtyard on a platform, with the surrounding sculptural and varied roofscape. The auditorium, the boathall and the library are designed with dramatic and very tall sculptural roofs. These roofs are emphasized by the buildings in between, the exhibition - and workshop spaces, where the roofs are lower, and yet characteristic. The auditorium, the "head" of the building complex, is placed right at the harbourfront.
