Novo Nordisk Nature Park

The landscape surrounding Novo Nordisk’s new head quarter is an interpretation of the phenomenon known from Danish woodlands; the dead-ice landscape. The Nordic landscape shapes and the rich nature biotopes emphasize Novo Nordisk' strong and distinct brand and mediates the company's unconditional commitment to innovation. The pathways winding through nature stimulates the senses of its employees and facilitates knowledge exchange, discussions, synergy and social meetings between employees in transit.
