C.F. Møller Architects : Mærsk Tower

If, a few weeks ago, we were talking about SUND Nature Park, sinuous and green landscape, it is now time to linger on the central point of this ensemble: the Mærsk Tower. Designed by the Danish architect CF Møller in 2016, the glazed and copper building, top of 15 floors, houses the future elites of Scandinavian medicine and scientific research.

Extension of the Panum - the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences of the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) -, the 42 000 Square Meters Tower hosts new classrooms and research as well as a conference center including auditoriums and meeting rooms.


These programs are articulated around an open central atrium where an imposing wooden spiral staircase connects the 15 levels of the Mærsk Tower concealed behind an envelope composed of copper sunshades, revealing a glazed facade. Each level opens with a "Science Plaza", a meeting and relaxation area for site users. Combining raw concrete, glass and wood, the interior, ethereal and warm, benefit from natural lighting thanks to the omnipresence of openings.

These bays also allow students or teachers to enjoy a view of the park and green roofs located at the foot of the tower, which have earned the local planning and landscaping agency SLA, designer of this outdoor space , to receive the prestigious Scandinavian Green Roof Award.

What to pamper the scientific students of the capital who can continue their curriculum in a pleasant setting to meet all their needs.
