Arkitema wins through sustainable architectural branding

A symphony in brick, a logo and a sustainable building. In co-operation with Bascon, Arkitema has formulated the winning proposal for the new domicile of the Danish brick company Egernsund Tegl: a visionary setting for a whole new way of presenting Denmark’s national building material.
Brick is used as the common material in both the facades and the interior. The brick-red rectangle of the Egernsund Tegl logo has been echoed in the architecture, which has the same simple basic form, and sustainability has been a significant parameter in the creative process.
How can we build sustainable architecture, while at the same time communicating a strong brand? And how can we unite the grand old lady of Danish architectural traditions, the masonry brick, with sustainable branding?
Arkitema’s winning proposal succeeds by allowing the building to literally bear the brand, and by permitting sustainable principles to permeate all of the architectural choices – choices which are also aesthetic.

According to this Danish brickmaker company:
Local manufacturing for up to eight generations, extensive know-how and a passion for the product are some of the ingredients found in the recipe used by Egernsund Tegl. The recipe has resulted in a stable progress through three centuries.
It is a considerable strength that our seven brickyards are divided between three different owners, who have all had bricks in their families through many generations. Being a brick manufacturer is not something you can study at the university. It is an experience and a flair that our three owners have inherited through three, six and eight generations, respectively.
