Experimentarium, Denmark’s Science Centre which is situated in the old soft drinks bottling hall of the Tuborg Breweries in Hellerup, has been extended and rebuilt in order to make room for among others a large outdoor rooftop exhibition and an upgrade of the existing industrial building to a considerably better energy efficiency standard. We were advisers to the project developer in all the phases of the 370 MDKK project.
Expansion of Science Centre
Tuborg Havnevej 7, 2900 Hellerup
Old Industrial Plant with New Cultural Content
Experimentarium is situated in the former soft drinks bottling hall of the Tuborg Breweries in Hellerup, which was erected at the beginning of the 20th century and later extended and rebuilt. The bottling hall itself was built in 1932; however, in the 1980s the plant ceased production of soft drinks, and a number of donations from various trusts made it possible to transform the bottling hall into the Experimentarium at the beginning of the 1990s.
Optimisation of the exhibition facilities as well as the energy efficiency level have been important factors throughout the process. For instance, the new 10.000 m2 addition is a zero-energy building.
