Bornholm Granite

Locally Sourced Stone

Bornholm is an island of granite, and the only place in Denmark where you’ll find exposed bedrock. Granite is used in the Green Footprints Park and parking lot, and because it is a local material, it both minimises transport and strengthens local production. With the quarry located just 10 km away, it’s as local as can be! When granite is cut, there is always waste stone – from big chunks to sharp chips and dust. SLA’s approach was that no granite should go to waste, and therefore the design uses it in all sizes and shapes. In the parking lot, both chips and stone dust are made useful.
