According to the award jury, the project won over so many others due to the conscientious integration of the landscape with the buildings’ green roofs. In their decision, they elaborated: “Novo Nordisk in Bagsvaerd is a project where opportunities for recreation and smart storm water planning is combined with great attention to ecological values. With three native habitats and innovative design, an undulating landscape is created where the park and roofs merge together.”
Established in 2000, this year marks the 15th anniversary of the Scandinavian Green Roof Awards. The award is given annually to a project that performs well in terms of exterior vegetation or by thinking innovatively about the development of green roofs and landscapes.
Skælskør Landscape Gartner is behind the individual trade contract while the innovative plant habitats are produced by Urban Green. Byggros has delivered all the systems for the green roofs.
