Floating meeting rooms suspended in new office

275x250.jpg These heart-stopping pictures of an office which appears to be floating in thin air have give high-flying business meetings a new meaning.

Designed by Scandinavian architects Schmidt Hammer Lassen, the new headquarters for Copenhagen-based mortgage bank Nykredit has captured people's attention around the world.

That's because the ten-storey glass structure features a large atrium complete with three suspended meeting rooms that are cantilevered off of the third and fifth floors.

Hanging 50ft above the ground floor, the private conference rooms are placed in hanging boxes clad in dark polished wood - meaning high-flying managers at the bank must have a stomach for heights as well as a brain for figures.

"The building also features glass elevators, balconies, and exposed stairways, creating an open and clean-looking work environment."

As well as the suspended meeting rooms, the building also features glass elevators, exposed staircases, balconies and walkways - creating a lively working environment.

Several internationally recognised artists have also contributed to the decoration of the building. Olav Christopher Jenssen created a 30 metre long mural, while a giant bronze sculpture by sculptor Per Kirkeby stands centre stage in the atrium.
