The guiding concept of the Wedge (CBS Kilen) is a dynamic ground-floor space that opens up on the activities and the landscape of the surrounding squares and buildings, including the newly renovated Frederiksberg Main Library, Frederiksberg High School, and Frederiksberg Center shopping mall.
The Wedge rests on two grass-covered hills and its glass fašade provides a smooth transition between the open air, the landscape, and the building?s interior. The top four stories are shielded by movable, vertical shutters in a combination of wood, colored glass, and metal, giving the building's fašade great variety. An organically shaped atrium rises five stories inside the building. Large circular windows provide light from above, both diffuse and direct sunlight, and create exciting light and shadow effects in the atrium. Classrooms and offices are placed along the outer walls, and corridors take the form of indoor balconies with views of the atrium.
