Redesigned by SevilPeach, Kvadrat’s headquarters celebrate textiles, landscapes and creativity

London-based architects SevilPeach have transformed Kvadrat’s head office in Ebeltoft, Denmark, creating visual connections with the surrounding landscape throughout the complex. 

A spectacular new 320 square metre showroom allows clients to explore the company’s
full range of textiles and products on site. The freshly opened up office spaces encourage collaborative working practice between departments and a new welcome area, social spaces and an inviting library extend Kvadrat’s familial ethos. 

The landscape that has so profoundly influenced Kvadrat’s use of colour has been brought into the building through new floor-to-ceiling windows and the opened-out offices and studios offer long lines of sight. 

Above all, SevilPeach has used lavish Dinesen oak floors throughout, furniture by Nanna Ditzel, Greta Jalk, Hvidt & Mølgaard and Verner Panton, among others, to honor Kvadrat’s historic relationship with Scandinavian design.

Based in Ebeltoft since its foundation in 1968, Kvadrat’s current headquarters were commissioned from architects Poulsen & Therkildsen of Aarhus in 1980. The red brick of the building’s construction echoes the local architectural vernacular, while the low profile of the structure sites it comfortably in the surrounding coastal landscape.
