Nordea Bank Headquarters in Denmark makes part of a Henning Larsen Architects masterplan for the Christiansbro area. Won in 1995, the masterplan concerns the redevelopment of a former shipyard site. The interaction between the exquisite baroque church, the church garden, the city to the east and the harbour entrance to the west makes it an extraordinary building.
Nordea Bank Headquarters complex consists of four long buildings facing the harbour and a U-shaped building bordering Strandgade to the east. The building complex is entered from Strandgade through an impressive gateway to an interior courtyard. It leads into a five-storey lobby containing the reception area and space for various events.
The buildings are linked by intermediate buildings and footbridges. Some of the latter also connect the new headquarters to the existing offices. The complex contains 20 percent individual offices and 80 percent open-plan offices. The canteen runs over three storeys with a triple-high room facing the harbour.
