Nordea is a prominent Nordic bank. Built on a base of slate with scintillating, transparent facades, its Danish headquarters sets new standards for the financial sector by opening up to the city.
As a tribute to the great Nordic landscapes, Nordea Bank Headquarters in Ørestad rises as a giant ice block on a charcoal slate base. The crystalline facade allows daylight to flow through the building and is a key component in the vision of creating transparency between employees, clients, and the surrounding city. Passers-by can glance in from the outside and witness life and work inside the building. The headquarters consists of two building volumes, designed as two large indoor atriums. One wing houses Scandinavia’s largest trading floor with a capacity of 600 traders, the other buzzes with life and activity amongst employees and clients.
