Danish Meat Research Institute by C.F. Møller

The Danish Meat Research Institute by C.F. Møller has a design based on the simple design idiom of its surrounding buildings, built in the 1970s, but with modern twists such as using pre-fabricated brick reliefs and incorporating bay windows.

With branches in London, Oslo and Copenhagen and the headquarter in Aarhus C.F. Møller Architects is one of the oldest and largest architectural practices in Scandinavia. Recently they unveiled their newest project, the Aarhus Gymnastics and Motor Skills Hall. The idea of this new kind of activity center which builds an extension of the Aarhus Gymnastics and Trampoline Hall is to invite and motivate children aged three to ten to develop motor skills while having fun playing. Possible future users of the hall are sporting associations, schools, youth centres, kindergartens, families etc.

'The Sil(o)houette' by C.F. Møller Architects

The Danish architectural practice C.F. Møller recently unveilded this new apartment building – a conversion of an old disused silo complex into a ‘rural high-rise’, with 21 high-quality residences composed as individual and unique ‘stacked villas’.

'The Sil(o)houette' by C.F. Møller Architects

“The ‘stacked villas’ are an alternative to standard apartments or to detached suburban sprawl, and are a mix of single storey flats and maisonettes, meaning that even the lower levels fully get to enjoy the views, and that no two flats are the same.

The actual silo contains staircases and lifts, and provides the base of a common roof terrace. Around the tower, the apartments are built up upon a steel structure in eye-catching forms which protrude out into the light and the landscape – a bit like Lego bricks.

This unusual structure with its protrusions and displacements provides all of the apartments with generous outdoor spaces, and views of Aarhus Bay and the city itself. Similarly, every apartment enjoys sunlight in the morning, mid-day and evening, whether placed to the north or south of the silo structure.”

The interlaced annexes create intimate living spaces with a maximum of direct natural light.

Crystal Clear by C. F. Møller Architects and Kristin Jarmund Arkitekter

C. F. Møller Architects, in collaboration with Kristin Jarmund Arkitekter, has won a major competition to design a spectacular new landmark project in the city of Oslo, for the client KLP AS, one of Norway’s largest property investors. The project, which has been dubbed Crystal Clear, consists of three towers, which grow organically from the ground to form a sculptural cluster, and are composed of stacked, prismatic volumes.

The development totals approximately 90,000 sq m of offices, commercial space and possibly housing, located at one of Oslo’s most valuable sites, the former postal sorting office adjacent to the central station. ‘Crystal Clear’ ties in with the city’s skyline, and the string of developing landmark projects that will help turn Oslo into one of Europe’s most modern capitals.

Partner and architect at C.F. Møller, Mads Mandrup Hansen states: “Crystal Clear is a unique proposal for a modern, Nordic cluster of towers – a Norwegian urban rock, that in an exciting way adds to the city’s strategic endeavour to interlace town and port into a contemporary and lively waterfront, and at the same time fulfils the client KLP Eiendom’s vision to build the most groundbreaking high-rise offices in Scandinavia.
