The studio has designed and overseen the construction of many renovations and additions to the National Bank (originally designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1961), including an extensive renovation and expansion of the bank’s roof terrace, employee dining lounge, and kitchen.

The challenge here was to create a strong identity for the space, while integrating the design harmoniously within the existing architecture. We developed a scheme characterized by a high degree of refined detailing, emphasizing the project’s restrained architecture and clear functionality.

The glass staircase highlights this design strategy. The stair, which functions as a floating transitional element between new and old, was developed in close collaboration

with the engineers and fabricators.
