The Danmark's Nationalbank building was designed by the Danish architect Arne Jacobsen and constructed in the period 1965-78. It is regarded as one of Arne Jacobsen's major works.
Danmark's Nationalbank is centrally located in Copenhagen, surrounded by the Old Stock Exchange, Christiansborg Castle, financial institutions and government ministries in the Gammelholm district.
In 2009, the Heritage Agency of Denmark (now the Danish Agency for Culture) decided to list the Danmarks Nationalbank building at the recommendation of the Historic Buildings Council. At that time, it was the youngest listed building in Denmark.
The listing is based on the architectural and cultural historical values of the building, including its architectural presence in the city, its plan arrangement and materials, gardens and courtyards and the attention to detail.
The listing means that Danmarks Nationalbank must apply to the Agency for permission to perform other construction work than maintenance.
