Construction starts on OMA’s Danish architecture centre

Work has started on OMA’s 27,000m² mixed-use headquarters for the Danish Architecture Centre in Copenhagen

Due for completion in early 2017, the competition-winning ‘Bryghusprojektet’ scheme straddles a ring road on the site of a former harbourside brewery.

Alongside the organisation’s new headquarters, the project includes a café, restaurant, housing, offices, a car park and a playground.

Architect’s view

Ellen van Loon, partner-in-charge, OMA

Instead of stacking a mixed-use program in a traditional way, we positioned the DAC in the centre of the volume, surrounded by and embedded within its objects of study: housing, offices and parking.

The urban routes reach into the heart of the building and create a broad range of interactions between the different program parts and the urban environment.
