designed by KBP.EU, the ‘cleaning facilities centre’ in copenhagen, denmark is the result of a collaboration between danish practice polyform architects and dutch practice karres en brands landscape architecture and urban planning. positioned underground in heart of hauser plads, the building’s roof positioned at street level has been incised, creating a void to maximize the amount of natural light entering the recessed interior. placed a level below the plaza, the offices are enclosed with a curved glass wall which borders an open air courtyard in the shape of an amoeba.

intended for 100 users, programmatic spaces include showers, changing rooms, a canteen, parking spaces and a garden which extends from the offices. serving as an outdoor work and break area, the courtyard is planted with colorful and textured vegetation providing changing scenery throughout each season. instead of a structure, a playground instead is placed within the public realm.
