We are proud to announce our winning design for a new City Hall for the municipal of Furesø in Denmark. The design proposes a city hall solution where sustainability and democratic design has been the driving force and ambition. “Our hope is that Furesø City Hall will be a model for the future of democratic institutions and provide a framework for collaborations and new alliances between government, citizens and business. Therefore, the team has designed a building that enters into a dialogue with its surroundings and its users. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with such an important project and we look forward to future cooperation with all our excellent collaborators to realize the construction”says Johannes Molander Pedersen, partner in NORD Architects.

The new city hall is going to be realized as a combined reconstruction of existing frameworks and a larger new building with new outdoor areas. The building will form a loop around a central atrium, which will be accessible to all citizens of Furesø. The facade will be given a green makeover and is designed with integrated seating niches and will relate to its surrounding neighbourhoods.

The new City Hall is being developed with integrated sustainable solutions such as solar cells, planted facades, natural ventilation, rainwater recycling systems and local drainage of surface water. The building will be energy optimized with a focus on a good indoor climate in which the employees will have influence on their own surroundings.

“The project creates an optimal cohesion and accessibility between the existing building and the new extension. The building is designed with multiple purpose square meters and spaces – to serve both traditional city hall functions and citizen-oriented activities outside office hours.” says Rasmus Rodam, project manager at NORD Architects.
