Our design of the Nordea Bank Headquarters in Ørestad, Copenhagen has received an award as part of BUILD’s 2018 Global Excellence Programme. The LEED Platinum certified office has been awarded ‘Completed Corporate Project of the Year.’
From the design concepts to the materials selected for the project, every aspect of the Nordea Headquarters drew inspiration from natural elements. This design reduced the building’s energy consumption by 62.5% and achieved a LEED Platinum certification.
This is the second BUILD award for the Nordea Bank Headquarters following the ‘Best Nordic Sustainable Office Building Project’ earlier this year. The project has also been shortlisted for the 2018 Dezeen Awards in the Business Building category.
The new Nordea Headquarters sets the tone for a new openness in the financial sector. Nordea is a Nordic bank, and with the new headquarters, employees and customers are given a building inspired by the grand Nordic landscapes as well as Scandinavian ideals of transparency and openness. The building is designed as a transparent house that meets the city with friendliness and openness.
