3XN Celebrates 25years of Design Excellence

Celebrating 25 years of architecture and design Danish Architects 3XN have built a portfolio of work that ‘focuses on the humanity and environment at the center of its architecture.’ Their recent works include the award winning Middelfart Savings Bank Headquarters and the incredibly popular Museum of Liverpool.

Projects by 3XN that have been featured on ArchDaily include:

Bella Sky Hotel Middelfart Savings Bank Headquarters Museum of Liverpool Swedbank’s New International Headquarters Horsens Stadium Horten Headquarters Muziekgebouw Saxo Bank Tivoli Concert Hall

Architecture Shapes Behaviour: At 3XN, we believe that Architecture shapes behaviour. Our role is not just to create beautiful monuments, but equally important, it is to create the framework which works towards a better environment and a greater enjoyment for those who will be using the building,’ says Kim Herforth Nielsen, who shares the partnership with CEO Bo Boje Larsen and Head of Competition Department Jan Ammundsen.

The social approach to architecture is appreciated also by Paul Finch, Editor Emeritus of the well known Architect’s Journal and Architectural Review. ’3XN has shown that it is possible to create buildings with focus on the user, without compromising aesthetic quality.’

Renowned architecture 3XN’s projects are well known and celebrated worldwide. This year the Middelfart Savings Bank Headquarters won both the prestigious European RIBA award and the International Architecture Award, while Oerestad College (known as the school without classrooms), still attracts visitors from around the world every week. This summer 3XN launched both the Bella Sky Hotel, the largest hotel in Scandinavia, and the Museum of Liverpool, which received more than 400.000 visitors in the first 2 months after opening.
