C.F. Møller Architects is behind Denmark’s first certified sustainable convenience store
C.F. Møller Architects has in collaboration with Netto and Salling Group developed the concept for the first free-standing convenience store to achieve a DGNB Gold certification. The store is made of timber and cladded with wood and terracotta tiles.
The first Danish sustainable free-standing grocery store to obtain a DGNB Gold certification is located in Horsens, Jutland. The store is the very first completed Green Netto out of many to come with a strong focus on sustainability, and the concept has been developed in a collaboration between C. F. Møller Architects, Netto and Salling Group (the owner of the Netto brand).
- We are happy about this collaboration between C.F. Møller Architects, Netto and Salling Group including a common ambition to create a sustainable building which we humbly hope can set the standard for future sustainable grocery stores. In this work we have used our experience in timber and brick architecture, and from timber research projects that we are involved in, in combination with digital design tools that we have developed to optimise i.e. the daylight and customer experience and minimise the CO2 footprint, says Klaus Toustrup, Architect and Partner at C.F. Møller Architects.
The Green Netto’s facades are composed of terracotta tiles and wooden elements, and the roof structure is designed in Danish-produced laminated timber. The entrance area is lined with heat-treated Nordic pine. A large glass entrance section draws daylight deep into the building and makes the shop appear bright and open, creating a view to the beautiful timber roof construction.
- We want our customers to enjoy shopping in our stores. Together with C.F. Møller Architects, we have invested many resources in both ensuring that experience and at the same time setting a new standard for how we build and run our stores in a much more sustainable way, says Michael Løve, Executive Vice President Netto International.
