The headquarters of Kirk Kapital, in the Danish fjord of Vejle, is the first building designed entirely by the artist Olafur Eliasson, who has collaborated before in architectural projects like the Harpa concert hall in Reykjavík or the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion of 2007, and completed smaller structures like Cirkelbroen bridge in Copenhagen.
Named Fjordenhus, the company’s office block emerges from the water at the port of Vejle. A footbridge gives access to the public ground level, where art pieces created specifically by the artist for this double-height space are displayed. An underground passage connects the basement with the quay.
Inspired by its context, the volume consists of four interlocking cylinders. The building is constructed around a concrete structure, with interior and exterior walls completed with 970,000 bricks in different tones. Eliasson has also designed the tables and office furniture, except for the chairs.
