The vision of the two office building projects, the Mermaid and the Rock, on Langelinie and Marmormolen quays, is to provide Copenhagen with a new and modern landmark. The names of the buildings draw upon a metaphorical language inspired by Langelinie's present principal landmark, the statue of the Little Mermaid, and the buildings comprise strong, sculptural interpretations with references to both the past and the future, forming a distinctive conclusion to Langelinie Quay.
The Mermaid Tower rises 148 metres above Marmormolen Quay as a slim sculpture of facetted, crystalline shape. The building represents the new, futuristic urban district which is planned to be built here. The Rock, on Langelinie Quay, resembles two rocks leaning against one another. The Rock is dedicated the old part of the harbour, and is clad with brick fillings.
The two buildings are linked at a height of 65 metres by a bridge of glass and steel anchored in the Rock, resembling the beam of a crane which lightly touches the Mermaid Tower. This creates a new physical link in the city’s infrastructure, while still allowing large ships to enter the port.
Both buildings are designed with hexagonal facade geometry creating a prismatic architecture with distinctive sculptural presence, and at the same time incorporate a number of energy saving features for natural ventilation and solar energy. The buildings are designed as thoroughly sustainable constructions, which meet the requirements for 'Passive house' energy standards.
The project proposes to minimize and simplify the engineering services by putting more effort into the façade design and in preventative pollution control. Not a simple double façade, not a massive, passive, insulated wall, not a complex thermo-deck, but a synthesis of all three: dynamic, light, high-performance integrated façade-deck-energy architecture using simple, known components in new ways, and in the process freeing up floor space by reducing the need for ducts and plant rooms.
