In 2011, together with Polyform Arkitekter, Karres en Brands won the international competition for the redesign of the museum garden of the Statens Museum for Kunst in
Copenhagen. The design, ‘SMK tilbage i Parken’ (SMK returns in the Park) connects the museum garden with the Østre Anlæg park, located on the city’s former fortifications.
With this, the SMK will become naturally embedded in the park, by which it in fact revises the previous situation. The museum garden thus forms the new entrance area for the
SMK and Østre Anlæg.

The office complex for about 800 employees resembles a varied flotilla of buildings at different levels, which are connected by a series of outdoor spaces like atria, courtyards, terraces and roof gardens. The mixture of office buildings and outdoor spaces creates the impression that this is a town within a town. The complex, surrounded by canals and lakes on all four sides, forms the entrance to the new, urban district on the waterfront in Aarhus, Denmark.

GREEN FOOTPRINTS – Circuit Design nature park made of Bornholm – for Bornholm

roundabout

Green Footprints (GF) is a real-life demonstration of how innovative, sustainable solutions are applicable to our every day operations and can have a triple bottom- line – being both economically, environmentally and socially sustainable. GF serves as a demonstration and a laboratory facilitating ongoing development of new sustainable solutions. Here, residue material from granite mining, and waste glass from the local glass blowing industry are some of the materials which are developed into building materials for the largest Nordic Cradle-2-Cradle nature park.

The circuit approach of Green Footprints will be a visible part of the landscape as green solutions and specific actions, which have both ecological and economic functions, and provide experiences and added value in more than one sense. Our circuit approach replaces traditional, standard methods concerning materials, energy, building and waste disposal with innovative green solutions which have a self-perpetuating positive impact and transform residue into resource.
