Osram House
Copenhagen

Originally built as a warehouse for a light bulb manufacturer, Osram House is now an example of how daylight can transform a dark, industrial building into a hub for cultural activities.

Buildings of the past can provide excellent space for today´s needs and ideas. Osram House in Copenhagen shows how. 

Osram House was constructed in 1953 as an office and warehouse. With an unpolished concrete exterior and large interior rooms, the building is a typical example of industrial-era architecture. The municipality of Copenhagen acquired Osram House in 1980 − it was to become a landmark building. Located in Nørrebro, one of the city's most diverse neighbourhoods, Osram House is now a culture and community centre. 

In 2009, Osram House was the scope of a major renovation intended to improve indoor climate, architecture, daylight conditions and energy efficiency. The VELUX Group set out to help the City of Copenhagen transform the building into a structure with minimal resource demands and new utilities.

The building radiates the openness we intended and attracts some very diverse activities. One of the biggest changes is that we now have activities from 8 in the morning to 10 in the evening.

Even when the temperature is high, it never feels uncomfortable,"
