IKEA Hubhult is good and green
IKEA Hubhult, the most sustainable office building in Scandinavia, has been awarded the Green Good Design award! The building is home to more than 1000 employees with a dynamic work life and an openminded attitude towards workspace and interaction. And when we say “home to”, we do not take that lightly. After all, IKEA is the number one homemaker in Scandinavia, possibly the world.
Mies van der Rohe Award nomination
We have been excited about the idea of mixing a supermarket, a sports hall and apartments for our project Sundbyøster Hall II ever since we came up with this “3 in 1" concept.
The jury of The Mies Award agrees and has nominated the building for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2017. Exciting!
Once in a lifetime
"It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be the architect of two UNESCO World Heritage projects". This is how Dorte Mandrup opens a short movie about the Wadden Sea Centre - naturally referring to this North Sea-project as well as the Icefiord Centre in Greenland.
