Maersk’s new domicile at Amerika Plads, is a multi-user building for 800 staff from the Oil & Gas division of Maersk. The building marks its presence with a striking curved corner towards the busy Kalkbrænderihavnsgade, and likewise towards the inner square behind.

Thus creating a welcoming meeting with its urban context where residential, office, retail and restaurant activities blend together. The ground floor, with its five meter high ceilings, projects its functions as a semi-public zone that interacts with life on the square.

13 000 sq. meters office building in central Copenhagen stands out for its architecture. All four corners of the building are rounded, so the facade glass packs and natural stone panels were manufactured and mounted curved. The total construction area reaches 4,950 sq. meters.
