Cult building with 3D ceramic facade
Copenhagen, Denmark – Since 1938 the K.B. Hall has been one of the most important concert halls in Copenhagen. The Beatles played here one of their first concerts in Denmark. After the hall was burned to the ground in 2011, it has now been revived in a contemporary, architecturally sophisticated interpretation. The extraordinary character of the building is due ito its three-dimensional ceramic façade.
The façade, designed by architects CHRISTENSEN & CO, is made of oversized 3D tiles and is almost entirely handcrafted. The glaze is also a special development. An intensive white was desired, for which the final design was based on sanitary glazes. The largest elements are 750 mm long and 500 mm wide. At the highest point they measure 80 mm. A total of around 3,000 moulded parts were installed between white terracotta panels. The project was developed and manufactured on behalf of NBK ARCHITECTURAL TERRACOTTA.
