The project included a full conversion and thorough renovation of the old Tuborg brewery on Strandvejen in Hellerup – alongside the construction of an additional smaller extension.
Although the brewery had been empty for a number of years and therefore appeared in a rather dilapitated condition, the property had a wealth of distinctive, architectural possibilities that merely required the right development.
From a very early stage in the process, the Steam Ship Company, Norden, expressed interest in the project. The final product clearly shows how a transformation with respect to the original characteristics can turn into someting unique.
Located in the coveted “Jydekvarter” in Østerbro, the project consisted of a former industrial property, which was thoroughly renovated and rented out for office, fitness, and supermarket.
In particular, the spectacular glass sections that incorporate the industrial look seem to catch the eye of the observer. In addition, though more hidden in the development process, one will find the large excavation under the parking lot, which ensured that the tenant’s needs were met.
The property is let as the head office to the Danish Financial Supervisory Authority.
An inner-city development project that not only elevated the property itself, but also to a large extent helped putting Pilestræde on the Copenhagen map as a lively and coveted secondary shopping street.
The project included the creation of Acne’s flagship store “11Pilestræde”, which takes its inspiration from Copenhagen’s “red light district”, Istedgade. The store is still considered one of the more avant-garde retail leases in Copenhagen.
A smaller architectural masterpiece by Entasis, where the property was tailored as a domicile for the “Lager, Post & Servicemedarbejdernes” union.
The dark and rough concrete sides of the property come into its own, while the bright ones ensure the right amount of light and provide the necessary and interesting contrast to the warmer material choices.
Tenants: MetroXpress, Fitness World, Bysted, Itera et al.
Rentemestervej 14, Copenhagen NW
This property from 1934 is located in the historic Northwest area which is particularly known for its many coveted buildings of industrial and modern factory-architecture.
In 1993, the building was listed due to its clear functionalist features both inside and out.
When acquired in 2004, Oskar Group focused particullarly on preserving these features throughout the renovation process while simultaneously modernizing the building to make it live up to today’s standards within functionality and sustainability.
Today, the prestigious work of Oskar Group´s former partner, Rasmus Friis (Tetris), originates from this building.
