Dissing+Weitling has designed Sonofon’s headquarters, so the building utilises its location at the waterfront in South Harbour, Copenhagen.

  • Sonofon’s headquarters, today owned by Telenor, is situated on a narrow site on Frederikskaj at Teglværkshavnen. We have divided the site into two triangles in order to create a building with the greatest possible contact with the waterfront – one for the building and another for the car park.

    The diagonal position creates a distinct main entrance and Sonofon’s logo and a large antenna stand out on the tip of the facade. Inside, the auditorium and the canteen provide a clear view of the harbour.

  • Tailor-made layout

    We accommodate the company’s changing needs with a flexible layout, where partitions can be installed or taken down every 1.5-metre. The five-storey office building has double corridors and rooms for the company’s customer service and sales divisions as well as a retail shop.

    The headquarters is made of concrete and the facade consists of glass, perforated aluminum sheets and aluminium panels.
