The building, which is designed by architect Venn Eske Kristensen, is ideal for an architectural office. Large and regular placed windows mean that the room has good natural  light exposure from the east and west. The good daylight conditions are supported by a new lighting system with kelvin change, which compliments the color and amount of daylight. Acoustically, the 400 m2 room is regulated with Soft Cell ceiling elements mounted in rafts on the underside of the concrete deck.

Renovation of Strandgade 56, Copenhagen
28th November, 2016
AG5 was commissioned by Wilders Plads Ejendomme to design comprehensive renovations to a historic three-story commercial property on Christianshavn – a picturesque, maritime neighborhood in central Copenhagen.  Interior works were tailored to suit the anchor tenant, an international patent bureau with 50 employees.  The firm's staff of patent attorneys require, due to the confidential nature of their work, separate and individual office spaces. Working within this conventional idiom, AG5 was able to provide privacy for each employee while creating inspirational, bright, and open spaces promoting social interaction.  This goal was achieved primarily through opening the floor plate at the central juxaposition of two perpendicular office wings, creating inviting, flexible lounge spaces for both guests and employees at each level.  At the penthouse level, flexible meeting spaces were configured with vaulted ceilings into the steep roof structure, providing a sense of spatial surprise and openness along with stunning views over the surrounding city.

The climb to the top of the tower is an experience of open and closed spaces. Careful consideration was taken to insure privacy of the adjacent neighbors with respect to views into residential units. At the same time, views from the tower are directed to optimize the unique nature of the area.
