CARLSBERG MALT SILO
Vilhelm Lauritzen Arkitekter has been commissioned by Carlsberg Ejendomme to transform a old malt silo at Ny Carlsbergvej, Copenhagen, into a modern, multifunctional, sustainable 4000 square metre urban building containing office facilities, cafes, shops and public services.
Sustainability from the start
The aim is to carry out the project as an example of the maximum social revitalisation of a former industrial site while minimising the environmental burden.
This will be done by using the existing silo structures and sustainable materials such as recycled tiles. This approach will be combined with environmentally responsible solutions such as natural ventilation, energy-saving utilities, the optimized use of daylight, and enabling the integration of sola arrays, rainwater collection and “green roofs”.
