The interior was cleaned up and partially refit but very little was done to alter the existing architecture. Aside from creating the giant sports hall inside, and an exterior roof deck that has become something of an “oasis,” a shipping container was pitched on top of the gables and converted into a studio for Ghetto Noize Records. This stunning, sustainable renovation [2] has become a coveted section of Copenhagen’s industrial skyline.
