Klelund Jagtslot

In collaboration with Schmidt, Hammer & Lassen Architects, we designed and produced the horizontal folding shutters for Klelund Jagtslot's conference room. The folding shutters' panels are made of tombac, a copper-zinc alloy, that were browned after machining. Behind the folding shutters sits a combined kitchen and coffee bar that can be hidden in plain sight when they are down. The folding shutters are motorized and controlled by the building's IHC system....

Ice Cream Stall

Schønherr's design proposal for the modernization of Ribe's Cathedral Square included an ice cream stall.   The ice cream stall is equipped with two exterior motorized folding shutters. One side has a vertical folding shutter, the other a vertical folding shutter.   When in use, the two folding shutters serve as a solar shading solution. When not in use, they effectively close off the ice cream stall.   We designed, developed and produced the drive system for the two folding shutters....

Metropol

When KANT arkitekter was tasked with designing the expansion and refurbishment of Metropol University College, they chose to clad a substantial part of the new building in perforated corten steel.   We assisted KANT arkitekter with developing the 108 vertical folding shutters that are placed over the windows in the building to provide dynamic solar shading.   The motorized folding shutters are made of the same type of corten steel and have the same perforations as the fixed part of the cladding. When the folding shutters are closed, they seamlessly integrate with the rest of the facade.   Photo credit: KANT arkitekter and Art Andersen & Copenhagen....

Experimentarium

CEBRA architects designed the extensive extension and refurbishment of Experimentarium, the Danish Science and Technology Center in Tuborg Harbour, north of Copenhagen.   The new design includes several box-shaped structures that have been placed on the original building to create a dynamic expression. The facade cladding is made of brushed and anodized aluminum with perforated organic patterns.   We developed a mix of 76 three- and four-wing vertical folding shutters for the project. The folding shutters are motorized and seamlessly integrated with the facade cladding....

UN City

At the entrance to Copenhagen Harbour is the new distinctive, star-shaped UN headquarters in Denmark. 3XN Architects have designed UN City as an eight-pointed star to achieve an architectural expression that emphasizes UN’s essential values ​​and authority.   The white facades stand as a distinctive luminous contrast to the surrounding water. The window surfaces are covered with an envelope consisting of more than 1.400 vertical – 2.5 m tall – folding shutters clad in finely perforated aluminum. The folding shutters are in constant motion as the light moves around the buildings through the day. We developed and produced the drive stations for the folding shutters.   UN City has received the highest LEED certification, a LEED® Platinum certification....

Trollbeads – Toldbodgade

We designed and produced the dynamic façade for Trollbeads’ headquarters in Toldbodgade in collaboration with BBP Arkitekter.   The façade envelops the building as an extra “outer skin” made of panels in Tecu Gold. The panels are perforated with a complex raindrop pattern in 200 different variations. 33 % of the façade is made of dynamic, horizontally folding shutters, which move up and down in time with daylight, sun and season. The system is motorized with our robust drive system that requires a minimum of maintenance.   Photo credit: BBP Arkitekter and Art Andersen & Copenhagen....
