Reflects the industrial heritage
The starting point for the tower is an existing historical industrial complex, with its legacy of the port’s industry and culture in former times. The impressive building structure will be preserved and supplemented with a new tower. The tower will be integrated into the existing complex, from which its basic geometry will be derived. The historical qualities of the existing building will continue to be apparent and will also gain new life from being opened towards the surroundings, to create attractive outdoor and indoor relations. On the roof of the old building, a new, publicly accessible green rooftop garden environment will be established, and will include a restaurant, orangery, and kitchen gardens.
- It has been important for us to integrate the industrial heritage into the new tower. This is done by using the existing building as a base and starting point for the tower and by reflecting the scale and shape of the existing building in the design of the new tower, explains Michael Kruse.
