As a tribute to the great Nordic landscapes, Nordea Bank Headquarters in Ørestad rises as a giant ice block on a charcoal slate base. The headquarters consists of two building volumes, designed as two large indoor atriums. One wing houses Scandinavia’s largest trading floor with a capacity of 650 traders, the other buzzes with life and activity amongst employees and clients. The F-Com trading desks, manufactured by Erich Keller, are electrically height-adjustable, allowing the employee to work in their preferred position. The entire trading zone is cooled by the unique Cool-Top system of Erich Keller AG. Nordea’s Head Office is designed to meet the highest LEED certification in the platin category.
