3XN has been awarded a contract to design an extension to the Frederiksberg Courthouse in Denmark.

The firm beat Arkitektfirmaet Kjær & Richter, Arkitema, Dissing & Weitling and Henning Larsen to win the design competition.

The firm’s design features a classic saddle-style roof and a small atrium in the centre, which is connected to other spaces in the building.

The scheme is expected to be complete by the first half of 2012.
