With the new headquarters, Microsoft consolidates its activities and employees from the organisation’s two branches in Denmark. The headquarters will constitute 20,000 m2 and will be the future workplace of 900 employees. The headquarters is designed to showcase new ways of working, attracting businesses from Denmark and abroad who wish to be inspired and create the workplace of the future.

The new Microsoft headquarters is part of the organisation’s overall vision to create the workplace of the future. The building design supports the employees’ individual ways of thinking, working and cooperating by means of a flexible building layout featuring state-of-the-art technologies. Microsoft will open up the building to allow it to interact with the public. For instance, the building will feature a study area for students from the near-by educational institutions.
