Headquarters for Atea

The new headquarters for the Danish software company Atea is located in Aarhus in Denmark and is designed as a environmentally friendly office building. Thus the 10.500 m2 office building is rooted in Atea’s aspiration to reduce the energy consumption and provide vibrant, social settings for approx. 400 employees.
To fulfil the sustainable aspiration, the office building will be certified by the British labelling system BREEAM, which is among the world leaders in the certification of environmentally friendly and energy efficient buildings. This certification includes several objectives, e.g. reducing environmental impact, optimising the benefits of sustainability and providing a method for measuring and monitoring.
Facing the main road to Skejby business park, the new headquarters has a prominent location, by which the architecture is an important factor in Atea’s brand strategy. Therefore, the architecture constitutes an identity-laden branding of Atea by expressing the company’s core values and working methods by being designed as an open and dynamic office environment which implements the newest software solutions within acoustics, lighting, ventilation and solar screening.
