Queens Corner

Henning Larsen as Architects

The building rises from the southwestern corner with a significant and slender tower marking the arrival at Herning Financial District as a point of orientation at the same time it responding to the larger scale along the circular road, Droningens Boulevard and the railway. In both local and city planning context the building comprises an architectural challenge to the surrounding newer buildings. It creates a volume that is considered a multidimensional sculpture with a façade that is both harmonic and at the same time varied. It is designed with uniform and exclusive materials and avoids creating a back and façades of lower priority. The building comprises one volume with two cuts creating a S-shaped sculptural figure with volumes that respects the northern and northwestern scale of the city. The ground floor comprises the massive volume partially undercut with a light recessed glass façade that appears light, transparent and welcoming. These areas are also used for marking entrances and exits.
