August Schade Kvarter

The area between DR Byen and Grønjordsvej in Ørestad Nord appeared empty and windswept. Due to the establishment of Nordea B​​ank’s new headquarter and Woods Augusthus it has now become an area that supports more city life in Ørestad. We provided the trees by Nordea Bank’s headquarter and the plants by Woods Auguthus with optimal growth conditions.

Smart rainwater management solves more problems in the cities

In the coming years, many larger cities have to come up with solutions for the challenges of increasing amounts of rainwater and more extreme weather. By implementing solutions that help protect densely populated and developed areas against flooding, the development of the square serves as an example to be followed when the rest of the city is to be climate-proofed. By actively making use of a city’s green areas in the fight against pollution and securing the city against cloudbursts, smart ways of handling rainwater solve a great deal of the problems, cities today are facing.

Certified sustainable building

Woods Augusthus has been designed to become a sustainable office building and follows the principles of DGNB – a method that considers the whole environmental lifecycle of the construction of the building.

The building was nominated as 2021 office building. It's a multifunctional building with office facilities, a restaurant, a grocery store, and a hotel placed inside, providing a work-life balance for those working there. The construction's architecture focuses on the user's health, life- and joy of work. The fluid transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces give a healthy indoor environment.

Openness from in- and outside

The facade of the Nordea Bank is transparent and provides the building with natural light. It gives an open, friendly, and light environment and offers the indoor trees far better growth conditions. The landscape architects SLA designed the outdoor environment outside Nordea Bank, which takes Nordic landscapes as a source of design inspiration.

Attractive green spaces

The unique nature of Amager Fælled is drawn up to the streets between the buildings in August Schade Kvarter through the green planting outside.
 
We provided our planting solutions for the street trees outside Nordea Bank's new headquarter, so the new urban spaces and functions are more inviting for the people living and working in the area.

The trees are planted in our StrataCells (Milford DK, Milford SE, Milford NO, Milford ENG) – an advanced root-friendly soil cell system for tree pits. The system helps to ensure that the trees have optimal growth conditions under the impervious surface of the area's outdoor spaces and gives the trees a long and healthy life.

Along the facade of Woods Augusthus, we installed our popular threshold channel Canyon (Milford DK, Milford NO, Milford ENG). We also provided a small plant bed (Milford DK, Milford SE, Milford NO) that supports a green wall – finishing the green touch of the building and adding extra green qualities to the construction.

The trees and plants give life to the concrete surroundings and add liveability and green value to the neighborhood.
