Leisure centre

25 km north of Copenhagen, Smiemans Projecten is building another new garden centre for Plantorama. This brings the successful garden centre chain to 13 locations in Denmark.

Knowledge based building

Just as with Plantorama Tilst, the project has been given the ideal ‘knowledge-based building’ implementation by using the special roof construction and the adapted N-S orientation. For example, the asymmetrically roof slopes on the south side are used for PV panels and transparent PC panels on the north side are used for as much light transmission as possible. Maximum natural ventilation is achieved by means of the widened ridge ventilation.

Sustainable experience centre

In addition to the solar panels that will generate a lot of electricity, we have also developed special wide rain gutters for this sustainable garden center to prevent nuisance during extreme rainfall. The stored rainwater is used for the irrigation of plants. By also using LED lighting , Plantorama sends the right sustainable signal to an increasingly environmentally conscious world.

Experience centre

Visitors will not be bored for a moment while shopping at the new experience centre of Plantorama. In addition to the extensive range of indoor and outdoor plants, flowers and tools, there is even a whole department for animals. While the children play in Playland, parents can enjoy something at the extensive restaurant.

We think it is important that customers can enjoy themselves and relax for a cup of coffee while they are with us. It should be part of the experience. We are specialists in creating atmosphere and experience!

Denmark's largest garden centre

At the same time, we built a 12,000 m2 garden centre in the town of Tilst. This is now Denmark's largest garden centre. Despite Covid-19, we managed to build both sites at the same time and without huge delays. Both experience centres were festively opened at the end of March.

Plantorama was founded in 1987 by his father Søren Vang Christensen. In the last 33 years they have grown into the largest garden centre chain in Denmark. The construction of the new locations in Tilst and Hørsholm will bring them to a total of 13 locations.
