Description of the project

Designed by C.F. Møller Architects, the 75 metre-tall Maersk Tower at The University of Copenhagen is Denmark’s most energy efficient research building. The building is characterised by its unique, dynamically curved shape that creates a visible link between the city and the North Campus.

With its transparent façade, the entire base of the building appears open and welcoming, allowing the interior to blend in with the external green landscape.

Visibility and transparency are underlined by the use of large vertical glass panes in the façade shutters. The façade is divided into a relief-like grid structure that comprises of 3,300 copper-covered shutters, which function as moveable climate shields, automatically opening or closing in response to direct sunlight, ensuring direct heat gain in the laboratories is kept to an absolute minimum. The shutters primarily shield against direct sunlight yet also allow daylight to filter through its fine-meshed perforations.

The glass in the unitised façade system is Guardian ClimaGuard® Premium2, coated thermal insulation glass that optimises comfort and wellbeing of the building’s occupants. The glass, some of which is curved, offers the perfect balance of high light transmission, high transparency (without disruptive reflections) and exceptional thermal insulation.
