House of Vestas is designed with a characteristic façade with reflecting dark glass mosaics and a building mass that elegantly bends and marks its own entrance area. The glass plates on the façade are mobile and controlled by the sun.

The building has a very flexible office concept to enable varying office environments with single-person to 20-person offices – without affecting the technical installations. The offices are closely connected and a street section in an atrium setting functions as the building's unifying space. The building was originally designed and built as Vestas's new head office, but has since become a multi-user office building where Vestas and other companies share the attractive office facilities.
Along the street course, extrovert functions like meeting centres, auditorium and canteen are located. At the same time, the atrium is the central point of the building where people arrive and go to the various departments and functions in the building. The atrium is a living and attractive environment, which along its course creates varying spatial experiences and possibilities of working and socialising.
House of Vestas was designed for LEED certification in the best category, Platinum, corresponding to a low-energy class 1 building. Among other things, the building has Denmark's largest geothermal plant, which consumes 50 percent less energy than your average office building. Adjacent to House of Vestas, we designed the Vestas Technology R&D Centre the same year.
