The Danish Railway Board

The former Nordisk Fjer building from 1901 was rebuilt to create a modern head office for the Danish Railway Board. The building, which was originally designed by architect Viktor Nybølle, has been part of Nordhavnen’s identity for 100 years and, with its red brick walls and distinctive vertical ribbon windows, now stands as a symbol of industrialisation between the permanent way and the dock. The historical value of the building was the reason why a decision was made to preserve it, in spite of its advanced state of dilapidation, when the harbour area was turned into a modern residential and commercial area at the end of the 1990s.
