BESTSELLER HQ

Bestseller tower, designed by Dorte Mandrup, is the tallest residential tower in Europe, with 320 mt of height.

The design of the whole village is compliant with DGNB sustainability certification: thanks to 125 MW solar power plant, the entire global energy consumption is covered.

The tower dominates as a landmark, while, at its feet, a series of new building create a town.

The fashion company Bestseller HQ host offices, retail areas and a high-rise hotel with a conference centre. The primary intents are to give to employees an attractive environment, in order to improve the quality of work and to re-think the classic idea of a headquarter, inviting the local community to join in and creating a long-term plan for the company’s presence in Brande, where the head-quarter is located.

Dorte Mandrup choses a strong grid facade, 

The main challenge of the tower is its slenderness that requires a strong structure which is able to withstand wind and seismic forces, being, at the same time as unobstructive as possible, to maximise usable space and uninterrupted views.
