With the award followed the words:
“The building, that was left empty for several years, has now – from a cooperation between Aquaporin and NORM architects – in the most distinguished way been transformed from a dead industrial skull to a modern headquarter for the Aquaporin Group.
With a solid understanding and respect for the act of Aquaporin as a company, NORM architects have combined the pure and the crude – the old and the new – letting a sharp contrast bringing the best of both forward.
In a time when you often erase old facilities to build new, there is great sympathy, sustainability and foresight in the renovation and preparation of the headquarters”
Peter Holme Jensen, CEO comments: “We, Aquaporin and NORM architects, are very proud to be honored with this award. We appreciate the great work of the committee in Lyngby-Taarbæk and treasure the common value in sustainable transformation and development – that is the key of Aquaporin as a company”
The headquarter building of Aquaporin was established in the 1960’s and first time honored the architectural award in 1971. The original visual touch of the building has been preserved.
