Østerport station
The renovation of Østerport station has been carried out with respect for the original architecture and aesthetics, so that it also meets modern requirements at one of Copenhagen's most travelled stations.

Transformation and renovation - breathe new life into architecture

Buildings can be transformed or renovated in many ways. We start from the specific project, the client's wishes and the given financial framework to find the optimal path to a renewed building. Sometimes space planning enough, other times the facade needs a boost, and in some cases the existing can be advantageously combined with new construction.

When we restore and transform - for example listed buildings like Østerport Station and Grey Friars School. - we do it with respect for the original architecture and building style, but with an eye for modern requirements and your needs.

The transformation of Gråbrødre School into housing is made with a focus on both environmental and social sustainability by preserving the building mass and involving potential future residents.

Preserve the building mass - it's sustainable construction

Transformation can breathe new life into an old building, providing a sustainable, creative and cost-effective way to create new architecture. We have extensive experience in both renovation and transformation and are happy to advise you on the possibilities.

A long building life is one of the most important parameters when we talk sustainabilityand there are many social, economic, environmental and cultural reasons for renovating and transforming rather than demolishing and building new.

As part of a renovation process, it's a good idea to look at ways to make your building more energy efficient, saving operating costs and raising your sustainability profile.
