Winghouse, Ørestad City, Copenhagen, Denmark

Henning Larsen Arkitekter
Date Built
73 Ørestad Boulevard
This office building in Ørestad gets its name from its shape which the architect describes as a stylised wing that is, " ... designed to visually give the impression of a floating house".  Adding to the sense of lightness, they add that the building is, " ... completely penetrated by light that, together with the reflection from the water from the waterfront, provides a sense of air and spatiality."

The Winghouse is managed by Brink Serviced Offices who describe it as a, " ... unique, distinctive and easily recognisable building ... The square in front of the building leads into an impressive foyer with its manned reception, high ceilings and large, elegant glass facades. From the reception area, the business centre's 10 fully equipped meeting rooms of different sizes can be reached by the large, impressive staircase or by lift. At the back of the building, the canteen serves both breakfast and lunch to business centre users and guests. In the summer months, lunch can be enjoyed on the large canteen patio with views of Copenhagen."

The Winghouse is strategically located beside the Metro line that connects Ørestad with the centre of Copenhagen and the airport.  It is part of a modern community with residential blocks, a large shopping mall and schools as neighbours.
