C.F. Møller Design, in collaboration with HOLMRIS B8, is launching a new series of break and zone furniture called Central Station. The new series is designed for creating zones in offices, learning environments, hotels or restaurants for optimum use of space. Here seen at the Trends & Traditions fair in Copenhagen with more than 4000 visitors.
Central Station caters for the call for a new type of furniture to accommodate businesses’ need for agile adaptation, whilst at the same time supporting an office layout tendency towards classical work zones merging with social zones and new ways of working.
classical work zones merging with social zones and new ways of working.
Central Station’s basic concept comprises a cast aluminium gable – sheets of ‘x’ veneer with a linoleum surface and a bench. Various types of accessories are also available. There are an infinite number of ways arrangements can be changed and expanded, and together they form a spatial interior landscape. Without using any tools, the various elements of the series can be moved around and combined as needed for storage, standing areas, meeting tables, upholstered seating, airports, hotspots, counters, coffee bars, seating etc. Photo: Peter Sikker
Modern Heritage. Ravnsbjerg Church from 1975. In relation to its surroundings, the church asserts itself not through size but through its weight and characteristic form. Its massive effect is accentuated by the deep cuts which separate the bell tower from the church building and by the deep embrasure over the large round window.
The church lies atop a hill still not built up on the east slope, and its distinctive form is visible from afar. But the church also constitutes a part of a small town centre with one-storey stores and children's institutions. From the little square the church appears quite low, in harmony with the small dimension of the square.
In the church’s interior the proportions, daylight and form and layout of the furnishing combine to create a solemn atmosphere. The inner walls of red brick, similar to the exterior, lend the space a certain warmth and austerity. The large 5 meter circular window opening projects daylight onto the altar and pulpit, and highlights the large wooden cross by the sculptor Erik Heide.
The organ is integrated into the space in a niche carved out of the brick mass of the walls, and the floors are red terracotta tiles. The roof and supporting structure are exposed timber. The construction of the building is very simple but the great dimensions of the brick walls and timber structures give them a special architectural significance. Photo: Torben Eskerod.
Happy Anniversary💥 Today it is exactly 30 years ago that the Globe in Stockholm was inaugurated. Now the Globe needs to be developed into a modern multi-arena and C.F. Møller Architects has been entrusted with developing this iconic building.
According to Stockholms Stad and Stockholm Globe Arena Fastigheter AB, the iconic building is in need of both renovation and modernisation in order to be able to meet both current and future needs. The renovations include replacing worn out technical installations, surface finishes, general lighting, telescopic stands and stand chairs.
Globen is the world's largest spherical building with a diameter of 110 metres and a ceiling height of 85 metres. The stadium was inaugurated in 1989 and was designed by Berg Arkitektkontor (since 2007 a part of C.F. Møller Architects). The architectural work included the idea concept, initialisation of the competition group, competition proposals, a local development plan, and the planning of the construction, interior design and signage.
In 2009, C.F. Møller designed a new attraction at the Ericsson Globe: two glass gondolas that take visitors up to the top of the building, which offers 360 degree views of Stockholm and the surrounding area.

Carlsberg Headquarters. Happy to share these three new illustrations showing the Carlsberg Group’s new headquarters in Copenhagen.
The Carlsberg Group's new central office provides the framework for a modern and dynamic workplace, where the intention has been to design a building that creates identity, knowledge sharing and innovation.
At the same time it has been important that the building stands in harmony with its surroundings and has the aesthetic quality that characterises Carlsberg as a company.
The building's central space, the atrium, opens onto Carl Jacobsen's Garden overlooking Carlsberg Byen, where the long history of Carlsberg as a brewery business began and where it is still unfolding. The ground floor is open to customers and business partners, and with the atrium serving as a welcoming space, it is inviting and open to its surroundings. The atrium penetrates all the floors of the building, and around the atrium on each floor, there is a communal area where the company's employees can meet. In this way, the atrium gathers all the office sections, both vertically and horizontally, so that all the departments are experienced as one single working community, reinforcing collaboration, knowledge sharing and innovation.

Happy to Share. Our proposal for the new Täby Park School in Sweden creates urban life and unites the city and its green spaces through its form and functionality. The school's educational principles are reinforced by the rooms’ flexibility and variety, allowing for various kinds of meetings and collaborations.
In the proposal the school is located on a prominent central plot in Täby Park. The location is urban, but at the same time interfaces with the landscape in the south.
The goal is to design a building that creates an informal, inviting, playful and educational school that can act as an urban centre and thereby contribute to an active urban environment.
Through its architecture the school has been scaled down to form smaller volumes, thereby giving individual pupils a feeling of belonging in the relatively large building. The building makes a warm and lively impression thanks to its variegated glass and wooden facade.
In the transition between building and street a number of places, activities and classrooms are created that can be used both by the school and by the general public. Through its shape and use of materials the school building thus makes for a place of encounter between the city and the park, and the residents of Täby can also experience the school area’s green spaces from the street.
The building features a rational and flexible structure, and the school has a lively and varied look, whilst at the same time being convertible and adaptable to future needs.
Art and Architecture. The evening sun in London serves the Peninsula Low Carbon Energy Centre well.
The Greenwich Peninsula Low Carbon Energy Centre is an important new landmark for sustainable and affordable energy for one of London’s major urban development areas, The Greenwich Peninsula. The building houses technically advanced boilers and combined heat & power plant that distribute heat energy via a District Heating Network from the Energy Centre to each plot across the development.
The 49 meter tall flue enclosure is turned into a place-making statement for the gateway to the Peninsula. Designed by British artist Conrad Shawcross, the cladding for the structure is formed of hundreds of triangular panels that fold and flow across the surface of the tower forming complex geometric patterns that visually break up the flat planes to create an uneven, sculpted surface that plays with the vanishing points and perspective.
"Summertime and the livin is easy".
This modern Norwegian wood cottage lays on a long narrow plot, approximately 50 m from the water, located alongside a cliff, and is designed to make the most of the panoramic fjord views of the archipelago. The cottage consists of 4 bedrooms plus two bathrooms, a living room / kitchen and a rooftop lounge (nicknamed the "lantern").
The cabin's most notable space is the outdoor terrace, in the gap between the 15 meter high rock ledge in the east and the cabin's east facade.
The rock face warms up during the day, and makes the summer evenings extra warm. The floor-to ceiling sliding or folding glass-facades of the living room frame the surrounding fjord landscape like live paintings.
The roof is green and covered with sedum of indigenous plants, and the rooftop lounge is a special feature, protruding like a wheelhouse, designed with the desire to create an indoors that brings residents as close to the natural setting as possible - with 180 degrees panoramas of the archipelago and the sunset. One just has to lay back and enjoy the view and a good tune from maybe Gershwin.
