Port of Aarhus, Warehouse 404
C.F. Møller Architects, 2016
In conjunction with the Port of Aarhus' new port centre, designed by C.F. Møller, one of the tenants - the Samskip shipping company - required a new and larger warehouse. The warehouse has been created with references to other C.F. Møller warehouses at the Port of Aarhus.
The project is the first stage of constructing a new type of warehouse in the port, created to facilitate future expansion, and with reference to the Port's other warehouse buildings. The building is based on a rational steel construction, with a highly flexible structure comprising two variable frames. While one frame is constant, the other is determined by receiving goods requirements and the building's welfare and office unit. With its used of sinusoidal aluminium profiled panels, translucent polycarbonate, black-white fibre cement boards and various galvanised items, the materials are in harmony with the Port of Aarhus' new port centre. The warehouse also has orange gates, as a reference to other C.F. Møller warehouses at the Port of Aarhus.
The warehouse type has special focus on a safe and pleasant working environment, with ample daylight conditions and welfare facilities.
