KPMG Copenhagen – Scandinavian Style

On moving to their new offices nestled in the newly renovated Nordhaven district in Copenhagen, KPMG wanted to create a space that represented their Nordic business values.

Two twenty-meter tall BAUX designs give the feeling of being outside, in the harbour on a summer’s day. Wood fibre textures an... More

The rounded form of the theatre school articulates the functional and acoustic requirements of the major performance spaces housed within and offers the most efficient enclosure for the required range of uses. The void carved out above preserves rights to light for adjacent buildings and reduces wind gusting at street level.Highly efficient in stru... More
