Arkitema Architects Selected to Design New Offices for Danish Government Agency

©

The Danish Building & Property Agency has selected Arkitema Architects to design a new office building to house four government agencies: Banedanmark, The Danish Transport Authority, The Danish Road Directorate and the Danish Energy Agency. The 43,000 square metre office building is named “Nexus,” a word which “comes from Latin and means linkage, centre and connection,” according to Glenn Elmbæk, partner at Arkitema Architects. “And that is exactly what we want to create for The Danish Building & Property Agency – a connection between people in their work lives, between knowledge and between the four government agencies.”
