Gottlieb Paludan Architects has taken on the role of client adviser to Realdania Byg in connection with the brewery site project on the Copenhagen waterfront. The building is intended to be a link between the city and the harbour. The design is developed by the Dutch architectural firm OMA.
BLOX consists of several sub-projects, and the building will house exhibition facilities for the Danish Architecture Centre (DAC) along with offices, residential units and parking facilities. Gottlieb Paludan Architects takes care of the communication and coordination between the client and OMA and handles any issues relating to potential adjustments of the design to local plans, any communication with the Danish Nature Conservancy Board and public consultation rounds. In addition, GPA deals with the overall process management related to end-user involvement together with comprehensive project scrutiny throughout the process and general screenings related to, for example, accessibility.
