Advice House was the first building completed in a series of buildings for the business-park north of Vejle in Denmark. Danish-firm, C.F. Møller Architects, designed the project as the iconic piece of the business-park development.
With such a high emphasis on the exterior, the architects chose Alucobond’s color shifting finish, Spectra, for the façade. The aluminum composite material (ACM) in Spectra Cupral finish has the ability to change color based on focal viewpoint and varying degrees of sunlight.
The nearly 54,000 square foot structure features a “flexible” office layout, which creates large open spaces, for easy interior ventilation and tenant customization. With only glass and ACM, the building receives a heavy penetration of natural sunlight, which is proven to improve the productivity of the workers inside.
The strips of ACM were cut into 13 different proportioned patterns, according to the designers, creating a unique and, in several instances, protruding exterior design. The folded aluminum panels utilize a sporadic geometric sequence, which heightened the ability of the material to shift color.
Varying in shades of reds and oranges, the building does it duty as a landmark for the highway’s passersby, standing out amongst its lush green surroundings.
