Henning Larsen architects – Danish architecture firm based in the capital city.
The Tuborg Nord project was established on a former brewery site in Hellerup, Copenhagen, according to Danish architecture office C.F. Møller Architects. The area is a mixed business and residential area, realised in a phased process in accordance with C.F. Møller Architects’ 1988 master plan.
The mix of residential and commercial usage makes Tuborg Nord an entire society in itself, full of life day and night, with a waterside location that attracts the population of the local suburb for recreational activities. The master plan emphasises large urban, public outdoor areas with squares, recreational quays, moorings, parks and swimming baths.
Tuborg Havn (Port of Tuborg) is a marina and mixed-use neighbourhood in Hellerup. It is located on a peninsula on the north side of Svanemølle Bay, just north of the border to Copenhagen Municipality
The area’s renewal is the result of a redevelopment of the former industrial site of Tuborg Breweries which ceased operations in 1996. The marina is operated by the Royal Danish Yacht Club which also has their club house at the site.
Other local landmarks include the Experimentarium science centre, the Waterfront shopping centre and the Saxo Bank headquarters. The port is located a 15 minutes walk from the S-trains stations Svanemøllen (south) or Hellerup (north).

Experimentarium Science Center
This Danish architecture project is full of contrasts meaning that the structure itself is as much an exhibition as the attractions and sights within. The use of hard surfaces throughout, coupled with the noise and chatter from thousands of daily visitors, meant the architects had to pay special attention to the acoustics.

The Maersk Tower
Designing the building as a tower leaves space for a green urban campus park, which is publicly accessible, and hereby incorporates and develops the surrounding urban quarter. The “floating path” leads pedestrians and cyclists across parts of the Maersk Tower, where the public has the opportunity to get up very close to the building and researchers, while also creating a new connection between Nørre Allé and Blegdamsvej.
