LM Harbor Gateway

The Langelinie and Marmormolen towers form the LM Harbor Gateway, which serves as the new entry point to Copenhagen Harbor. The office towers are connected by a cable-stay bridge suspended 213 feet above the water’s surface.

The tinted areas on this building section identify the spaces that are accessible to the public. Escalators rise from the ground level to elevators, which access the connecting bridge; a public observation deck tops each tower.

Because of the orientation of the two harbor piers and the massing of the buildings, the bridge meets at an angle, a move that the architects liken to a handshake.

Each side of the bridge is identified by a color (yellow for Marmormolen, orange for Langelinie) on both the ceiling and the underside of the bridge. This color system indicates when visitors pass from one building to the next. At night, the bridge is lit from below, and its colors reflect onto the water.

This watercolor sketch highlights the Gateway’s bridging of land and sea. The observation deck on each building is oriented toward the representative vista—the open water for orange Langelinie, the city skyline for yellow Marmormolen.
