Media House for Danish Broadcasting Corporation The concept of dynamism can be seen in all facets of the building. The large, transparent facade opens the news building towards the urban space, allowing direct views into the enormous atrium embracing the whole building over several floors, creating a connection between the organic, curved balcony, the central news studio and the building’s internal street. The interior design ranges from open office landscapes to various individual rooms for project teams with smaller cellular offices and quiet rooms.
Sustainable technologies and building solutions are also integrated in the overall design strategy. The building demonstrates how environmental consciousness contributes technically as well as aesthetically to the overall architectural expression. The extensive use of glass on the facades as well as the roof makes it possible to take advantage of daylight and reduce the use of artificial lighting.
The increased demands for regulation of the indoor climate prompted much of the current research, thanks to support from the EU. This resulted in a completely new indoor climate concept combining groundwater cooling, a double façade sytem, natural ventilation and incorporation of solar cells in the roof construction. Integration of energy-saving solutions in the architecture of this building has been awarded the Solar Prize 2006 by the City of Copenhagen.
