Project report

The Tivoli Congress Centre is situated next to the Danish National Archives and the two buildings are connected by a landscaped bridge. The development is planned to be extended towards the southwest, and then even this walkable transition at a dizzy height is to be continued. The drainage and water storage element Floradrain® FD 60 has been applied on the entire roof surface on both roof levels, then it was filled with Zincolit® Plus and covered with the System Filter SF. The walkways around the planting beds and the playground were covered with Chinese granite, which was laid in a harlequin pattern. The planting beds were mainly planted with perennials and low growing shrubs, but also with seasonal plants such as black and white tulips.
