Copenhagen’s Suspended Glass Office

Designed by Scandinavian architecture practice Schmidt Hammer Lassen, the new headquarters for Nykredit, one of the leading mortgage banks in Denmark, is quite stunning. The 10-story-tall structure allows for an ample amount of natural light thanks to its impressive glass facade. The most striking part of the design has to be the three suspended meeting rooms that are cantilevered off of the third and fifth floors. The building also features glass elevators, balconies, and exposed stairways, creating an open and clean-looking work environment.

Great care was taken in anticipating how the large glass exterior would capture and hold heat. Along with being cooled using water from a nearby harbor, specific sections of the roof and double layered facade can be opened up to allow for natural ventilation. Not only does this building have an elegant appearance, it's also one of the largest office buildings in all of Copenhagen.
