BLOX

  • Multi-disciplinary engineering and sustainable design for a six-storey mixed-use facility.
  • A new link between the city and the harbour.
  • Designed to achieve the LE2015 energy target.

BLOX is a new six-storey mixed-use facility located on a prime location in Copenhagen’s harbour front. It will be the new home for the Danish Architecture Centre (DAC) and the Realdania Foundation and includes offices, exhibition spaces, an auditorium, a restaurant, residential spaces and an automatic car stacker in the basement.

The project has very high ambitions in terms of sustainability and architectural quality and will fortify the link between the city and the harbour. The building is planning to achieve the LE2015 energy target under Danish regulations.

Strategies for a complex project

We are providing multi-disciplinary engineering to deliver a complex project on a site within difficult constraints, including construction under and over an arterial route and adjacent to the harbour and canal.

We are also working closely with the client to develop strategies which address sustainability in a holistic manner. These involve design solutions and input into topics including energy efficiency, carbon neutrality, materials, embodied carbon and seeking to address socio-economic issues.
