Contemporary and sustainable construction
BESTSELLER wanted a contemporary and sustainable framework for their new office complex. Consequently, we put particular focus on energy-optimising solutions such as sea-water cooling, solar heating and triple glazing. The finished result complies with a low energy class 2015 building.
The office building measures 22,000 m2 and is located by the harbor in Aarhus.
