Concrete Sandwich Panel Building: Residence Hall Copenhagen Development, Denmark – design by KHR arkitekter

Hedorf Kollegium Frederiksberg

HEDORFS RESIDENCE HALL

Design: KHR arkitekter

Buildings made with sandwich panels have a reputation for being dull boxes. In Hedorf Residence Hall at Frederiksberg KHR arkitekter shows that buildings cast in concrete can be both creative and inspiring.

Expressive and dynamic facade

Inspired by the bay windows at traditional Frederiksberg apartments KHR has designed a geometrically shaped bay window, which creates an expressive and dynamic façade. The bay windows are placed above the floor to give more spacious and dynamic apartments.

Kaleidoscopic effect

A small triangular window is placed in top corner of the bay window with the broad concrete wall behind. The result is a slim expression in the building because of the reflection from the window in the window ledge. The windows also give a kaleidoscopic effect where the expression of the building changes according to where you stand. From one side the façade opens up with windows, from the other side the closed bay windows with their organic movement characterize the facade. Thanks to the bay windows there is a play of colors between light and shadow all day independent of the light. And the wave motion on the façade makes the hard material appear soft and organic. Hedorf Residence Hall is situated close to Flintholm Station, CBS and Niels Brock. The residence hall has 4 floors with a total of 52 one bed apartments. Each floor has a common kitchen where the students can meet, cook and socialise.
