A new public administration in Tørring

Inviting the public inside
With a DGNB Gold certificate (awarded by the Danish branch of the German Sustainable Building Council), the new public administration building in Tørring has become the small town’s beacon of sustainability.

With an open and light office layout, wood elements, and smaller enclosed areas, the new administration building in Tørring offers employees a modern, social work environment with comfortable acoustics and a merger of open and private work zones.

Public facilities and a large rooftop terrace

The building is not just designed for 95 public employees who work there. With the ground floor’s reception, café, and meeting rooms open to the public, the hope is that locals will stop by, and organisations make use of the space during evenings and weekends. Furthermore, on the top of the building, a large rooftop terrace is open to the public 24/7.

“You can walk straight from the central square of the town and four floors up the external Heaven staircase to the green rooftop garden,” explains partner Anders Johansen. “From there, you can always enjoy wonderful views of the town and, sometimes, special events.”

The rooftop garden is designed to facilitate events and concerts of up to 50 people.
