The new logistics centre, located on the E45 motorway at Haderslev, supplies all of the clothing company Bestseller’s boutiques, right across Europe. The idea was to create an industrial building that would go beyond the typical standardised solutions for logistic facilities, and create a building with a striking sculptural identity that would add an experiential quality to its surrounding.
There has been a strong focus on sustainability in the planning, including use of recycled materials, wood cladding, large-scale green roofs, low-energy machine equipment and the use of renewable energy. Emphasis has equally been placed on creating pleasant and safe workplaces, allowing daylight to enter, and on creating an intimacy with the landscape and the views, including the surrounding 50 ha site which has been designed to form a natural area with oak woods, wetlands and meadows.
