Parken, Denmarks National Stadium
16000 m², 42.000 spectators
1990-1993, 2006-2007 (tender design)
In 1990-92, the old Copenhagen Ballpark was expanded and built into a modern stadium for sports events and concerts accommodating 42000 spectators. Due to the rebuild, the building was renamed ‘Parken’ – the ballpark’s popular calling name. The old construction was removed completely except for one long side of the grand stands. This was transformed into the end side when turning the ballpark 90 degrees.
Parken also offers revenue producing office space, which has been uniquely integrated into the three of the stadium’s four corners. Every office corner has the office space located towards the street, while a semicircular stairway with a glass façade faces the stadium, thus offering a view to the football field. The circular space of the stairway with an atrium in the middle creates, together with a tight composition and choice of color, a distinctive aesthetic experience.
In 2006-2007 C.F. Møller was the architect of a tender design that provided the basis for the construction of a new northern stand in Parken with 8.600 seats and two corner buildings comprising office spaces, media- and athlete facilities, hotel and lounge area.
Parken has since its construction been rebuild, including a retractable roof, by another company.
