Henning Larsen’s and Ramboll’s design for a 28.000 m2, 8 story multi-user commercial building for the Danish pension fund AP Pension is no exception. 


Putting UN’s Sustainable Development Goals first


Sustainability is key in the upcoming multiuser office building at Marmormolen in Copenhagen's Nordhavn, as the structure of the building will be entirely wooden.


As the case against concrete construction gains more evidence, solid timber is emerging as leader in the list of sustainable alternatives.


Timber, in stark contrast to concrete, stores embodied carbon. Thus, by swapping out the structural concrete with timber, the structure will embed tons of carbon instead of emitting tons.


A Marketplace for Community Making


Unlike typical, closed office environments, Marmormolen is conceived as a marketplace for ideas, the ground floor an open and flexible extension of the public waterfront adjacent to the building.


The building's multi-users profile, the diversity of extroverted programs and publicly accessible ground floor - outside and inside – makes Marmormolen the antithesis of a traditional and introverted domicile.


With a transparent, open and inviting ground floor, Marmormolen will be a sustainable setting for a vibrant marketplace. 


Inside, the ground level will hold amenities for the tenants such as a large cantina and auditorium, which will double as a public eatery and venue for theaters, flea markets etc. respectively.


On upper levels, workplaces enjoy views of uninterrupted skies, the sea and the skyline of Copenhagen. In the center there’s access to a large courtyard with greenery and good exposure to sunlight.


Marmormolen, designed by Henning Larsen and Ramboll for the Danish pension fund, AP Pension, will break ground in early 2022, and is expected to open in 2024.
