Sonnesgade 11
DK-8000 Aarhus C

Sonnesgade 11 is a multi use office building in Aarhus, Denmark. The building is designed by local architects SLETH who also inhabit the building's first floor. The building sits on top of a former industrial site in direct connection with the railway and close to the former Aarhus Freight Yard, Godsbanen. The architecture of the building takes clues from its past and surroundings, producing an eclectic modernist appearance that changes from every angle.

Sonnesgade 11 mixes the private and public. The ground floor of the building is a restaurant and on both sides it is flanked by public plazas. The building is simultaniously an event space, a work place, a dining experience and a recreational urban space. If you are interested in visiting the building or hosting an event here, please feel free to contact us.
