The city council of Herning, Denmark, has chosen our proposal for a new car show-room & service center to be the project erected on a site often nicknamed as Hernings “most attractive”.
The geometrically characteristic building will stand as an iconic figure by the main road at the city’s threshold, housing a 2000 m2 showroom and a 2400 m2 service center.
The rhombic volume of the building is divided into two halves by a diagonal cut; a dynamic and lucid showroom facing the main road contrasted by the stable mass of the service center behind. The showroom is conceived as a continuous spiraling ramp from the sub-street level up to the roof – and is expressed in the showrooms tilting facades.
The diagonal cut between the showroom and the service center creates a visual connection between the shopping center north-west of the building and the green areas to the south-east.
The project is developed for the client Bjarne Nielsen in collaboration with CC Contractor, Finn Balle & B. Moesby Engineers. Read more about the project on the city councils website.
