Aarhus Port Centre by C.F. Møller

The new Port Centre designed by C.F. Møller unites many of the central functions at the Port of Aarhus in a central building complex, which is designed to form an extremely flexible facility.

The centre includes port administration offices, workshops and warehousing, a customer reception centre, security management and staff welfare facilities as well as a public eatery. There are also commercial units for lease to port-related businesses, which create a cluster of activities sharing a variety of functions. Users are a manifold group, including Port of Aarhus staff, tradesmen, dock workers, truck drivers and visitors.

The centre is located adjacent to the key operative areas of the port, such as the container terminal and Omniterminal. The location has spectacular views and the centre opens up in all directions. Inspired by a desire to achieve best flexibility, the centre resembles an ice crystal. The initial complex is an entity in itself but it will be possible subsequently to add more wings.
