Henning Larsen designs Microsoft HQ in Denmark

Danish architecture firm Henning Larsen Architects has designed a Microsoft headquarters as part of a new university and business district located north of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The project was commissioned by the council of Lyngby-Taarbaek and Henning Larsen will develop a 40,000m2 cluster of buildings comprising student residences and shops alongside the Microsoft offices.

“The citizens can use our open cafe and technology area, students can use our allocated study area, and we will regularly host different events that will connect us even closer to the local area and Denmark,” said Niels Soelberg, CEO for Microsoft Denmark.

“The project reflects an interesting urban development strategy. Knowledge-intensive businesses are connected to urban life and the local study community,” said Lyngby-Tarbæk’s mayor Søren P. Rasmussen.

“The building will create a lot of new jobs and provide a welcoming, dynamic urban space where city centre and green areas meet.”
