Listed building

Abstract icon ​The Danmarks Nationalbank building was listed by the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces in 2009 on the recommendation of the Historic Buildings Council. This adds significantly to the complexity of restoring and renovating the building.

The listing is based on the architectural and cultural historical values of the building, including the architectural appearance of the building in the cityscape, its layout and materials, gardens and extremely well-designed and intricate details.

The building was designed by the Danish architect Arne Jacobsen and was completed in 1978.
At the time of its listing, Danmarks Nationalbank was the youngest listed building in Denmark.

Permission to renovate
The listing means that Danmarks Nationalbank must apply to the Danish Agency for Culture and Palaces for permission to carry out any work over and above ordinary maintenance.

Danmarks Nationalbank wants to update the layout of the building to support the workplace of the future. This goes beyond ordinary maintenance. All refurbishment and changes to the layout of the building will be carried out in close dialogue with the agency to ensure that the architectural and cultural values are preserved for posterity.
