Mærsk Tårnet

We assisted C.F. Møller Architects with developing a range of different dynamic solar screening concepts for Mærsk Tårnet, a 17 story high-rise in the middle of Copenhagen.

 

Full-scale mockups of the different concepts were built, so the contractors, architects and engineering consultants could compare them to each other based on aesthetics, materials, functionality, outlook, transparency, environmental issues, energy, comfort, safety, durability, operational stability and cost.

 

The final concept, motorized exterior horizontal sliding shutters, was then developed into a fully functional mockup. The mockup was tested in the most advanced climate test center in Europe.
