Danish architecture practice Henning Larsen and engineering company Ramboll have designed an eight-storey stepped wooden building for the Nordhavn waterfront on the eastern edge of Copenhagen. The proposed mixed-use commercial building, called Marmormolen, would measure 28,000-square metres and be constructed entirely using solid timber. Marmormolen was designed for Danish pension fund AP Pension and will be built in Copenhagen's Nordhavn district. According to Henning Larsen, which designed it together with Ramboll, it will be one of the largest contemporary wood structures in the country.The building will be built entirely from timber. By using timber as opposed to concrete, the building will embed tons of carbon instead of emitting tonsMarmormolen will be formed of a collection of rectangular cubes that differ in height, rising and falling in response to the site's surroundings.At its highest, closest to busy streets and train tracks, the building will rise to its full eight storeys. From here, it will gradually fall to three storeys, as it tapers down to a nearby residential area on the opposite side of the site.Marmormolen will contain offices, retail spaces and restaurants, and be surrounded by urban spaces including plazas, gardens and promenades on three sides of the building.The ground floor of the building is planned as an extension of the nearby public waterfront, merging existing public amenities with a landscaped park and a large public marketplace.A canteen and auditorium also located on the ground floor will function as both a public eatery and events space for markets and theatres.On the upper levels of the building, workspaces will feature panoramic views across Copenhagen's skyline and seafront, while a large shared courtyard at the centre of the building will provide the interior with green outdoor space.Each of the rectangular cubes will have access to a rooftop terrace and gardens that will house beehives, butterfly hotels and areas for growing vegetables for use within the canteens.The interior will be constructed using timber to echo the building's structural integrityGreenery and plants will be used throughout the building and interiorConstruction for Marmormolen will begin in early 2022 and is expected to open in 2024.
