The building is located on Dag Hammarskjölds Allé, in Indre By, Copenhagen, and it was opened in May 1954.

The embassy also oversees American interests in Greenland.
The current American Embassy building in Copenhagen, Denmark, opened on May 27, 1954. It was planned and built under the direction of Ides van der Gracht, Regional Director for the Foreign Buildings Office of the U.S. State Department.
The designs were done by two American architects: Ralph Rapson, of the School of Architecture, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts, and John Van der Muelen, School of Fine & Applied Arts, Department of Architecture, University of Chicago, Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.
The Danish supervising architects for the building were Jørgen Juul Møller, M.A.A., and Erik Herlow, M.A.A., both of Copenhagen.
The Embassy is located in Østerbro, an area of Copenhagen home to many embassies, cultural and historic buildings and even the Danish Royal Family.
