Welcome to our New World of Work

At site Lyngby, we make our vision of the modern workplace a reality, leveraging cool technologies to enable our employees to achieve more, to learn and to have fun while doing it.

Designed for interaction

Site Lyngby is designed by Henning Larsen Architects with lots of input from our own employees on how to best support agile work flows and team collaboration, innovation and community engagement. Not to mention what coffee to serve and which games to play!

Bringing together two Microsoft entities and cultures, Engineering and Sales & Marketing, into one space – and inviting the public in as well, means our new domicile in Lyngby, just north of Copenhagen, buzzes with activity every day. The site has truly been designed with human interaction, transparency and openness in mind. And by inviting the public in, we strengthen our ties to the local community. Our location in Lyngby also facilitates our collaboration with one of the largest technical Universities in Scandinavia – the Danish Technical University – where we also invite customers and partners, students and the general public to meet Microsoft, whether it is for coffee or coding events.

Find your way.

We are located at Kanalvej 7, 2800 Kongens Lyngby, just north of Copenhagen, Denmark.

“We’ve created a platform for our employees to be more innovative and productive. It’s about the impact made by each and all of us every day. We believe that this will create more value for employees, for Microsoft, our customers and partners, and the society.”

Charlotte Mark, Managing Director, Microsoft Development Center Copenhagen

Enabling activity-based working
At Microsoft, we have created a work environment that allows you to find places designed for all the different activities that take place during a modern workday. Whether they are team meetings, phone calls, informal coffee chats, concentrated coding work, product group status meetings, writing emails or something completely different – our site supports it.

Coffee and chance encounters
You’d expect a brand new Microsoft building to be a marvel of technology, and you’d be absolutely right: Everything is designed and built to let people connect, collaborate and co-create, without borders or barriers. Surface Hubs allow you to attend meetings without being there, and everyone can write on the same interactive whiteboard in real time, regardless of their physical location. Of course, data can be accessed from everywhere. But no matter how high the tech gets, we also want to get together to collaborate. So we set out to design a building promoting that, too. That’s why every floor is centred around the hubs, and more importantly, the coffee machine. This increases the chance of bumping into other people, and we want to encourage people to meet and interact. Studies show that only 8% of our best ideas come when we sit alone at our desks, and that we work from more than three places during a day (source: Forrester 2014).

Community spirit
The ground level is open to the public, who can stop by at Original Coffee to try out our products or just have a really great cup of coffee. We want to invite the public in because we acknowledge and celebrate being part of the city of Lyngby, a city that has ambitions of becoming the City of Knowledge and Urban Development – a kind of Silicon Valley of the north. The café is even powered by our own Dynamics NAV solution which is developed here in Denmark. Original Coffee originally had many separate systems to run their shop – but now one of our products covers the whole process. This way we also get direct client feedback – in-house!
