danish firm 3XN have designed the new headquarters for saxo, a young internet bank
based in copenhagen.

the architectural design is based on saxo’s profile and branding. the interior of the building
is open and transparent. the plans centre around a softly shaped atrium with a glass roof.
in the atrium the main staircase winds up to the roof. the main room of the building is the
trading floor where share prices are monitored intensely. the building also encompasses
a large number of rooms for technical support, kitchenettes and recreational areas.
