The SEB bank building
Lies on a recently designed harbor site that was once a parking lots, is now home to two 10-story buildings with glass and copper facades, and a patio around it that forms the roof of a parking area.
It’s all designed by Danish Architects Lundgaard & Tranberg and in my opinion they’ve done a real good job! The building lie just within walking distance, only 5 minutes away from Copenhagen Central Station if you follow Bernstorffgade.
The two buildings could not be conducted with the traditional prefabricated building element-style, which many – many buildings are constructed by, because of the buildings design. The SEB bank buildings are cast on-location using a technique which required that construction couldn’t be interrupted while it was being carried out! That means that for a whole three weeks, 50 workmen were on shifts around the clock, and there were always someone working with something every hour of the day.
