Danish Design Centre
Denmark's first Design Centre is located just a stone's throw from the town hall square across from Tivoli gardens and showcases all that is hot in Danish design. There's always an exhibition on and their shop is guaranteed to tickle your fancy with its wealth of cutting edge design wares. The building is divided into two main elements: a five-storey building facing H.C. Andersen’s Boulevard and a two-storey building facing the courtyard. On the boulevard side the facades fit remarkebly well in the streetscape. The height and rhythm of the front house facade follows the rest of the buildings; however, the design and choice of materials – primarily steel and glass – give the building a special identity in the row of houses. The two lower floors that are open to the public include exhibition areas, café and a conference hall.
