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.
