The new development in Flintholm, at Jesper Kleins Plads, is designed as a light, almost crystalline building, standing alone between the large commercial and residential developments in the area.
Next to the Flintholm Company House and backing onto the Metro, the building helps define the space around Jesper Klein’s Plads.
On the square, the ground floor is deliberately rotated in relation to the upper storeys, ensuring good visual contact between Dirch Passers Allé, the square, and the entrance to KPMG. It also provides an architectural dynamic, emphasising the building’s stand-alone position, where Dirch Passers Allé changes its course in the direction of Stig Lommer’s Plads.
The ground floor houses the lobby, kitchen, canteen, and meeting and conference facilities. The functions all relate to their surroundings with their the transparency and openness.
There are 5½ office floors, designed to facilitate various uses and applications. The top floor of the west-facing wing is an ‘open roof floor,’ used for technical installations, but the building’s façade has the same height as the wing facing the Metro line, thereby concealing the technical installations. Other roof surfaces will be planted.
