The new headquarters of DFDS is the result of an exciting and mutually interdisciplinary collaboration with a strong focus on the company’s DNA and community.

In 2022, DFDS moved into the newly established office in Nordhavn spanning seven floors. They wanted to build an environment that contributed to cross-functional collaboration, knowledge sharing, team-based work, and social community.

They wanted the space to reflect the culture and the work that DFDS represents in the modern DGNB gold-certified building. Finally, they wanted a bottom-up process with great employee influence on the new layout.

To ensure that the new space planning was involving and motivating the employees, the work was organized in close collaboration with DFDS.

Working groups of committed DFDS employees were set up with the purpose of including the employees in the design process with their input and knowledge.

This enabled the design team to be well-equipped to solve the task and simultaneously make the employee feel a great degree of involvement. Overall, this contributed to a positive atmosphere around the entire project.

The design of the new office reflects DFDS as a modern, high-tech company with a rich history and ambitious values. The inspiration for the design, furniture, graphics, and color scheme was based on transport, and the destinations of DFDS around the world.
