Forfatterhuset

The author's house, projected by COBE Architects, appears in a similar way markedly and discreetly. Significantly because the building has only rounded corners and is done in distinctive colors, discreetly because it is fitted to the surrounding buildings

Saint-Gobain contribution: Special facade solution developed by Gyproc, Weber and Isover in cooperation. Architects COBE had a vision of a wavy facade done with beautiful red brick rods. There were no existing solution that allowed for this without architectural compromises, but through cooperation between Gyproc, Weber and Isover a new type of solution was specially designed.

From the start, the vision was clear and radical: COBE architects wanted to create a new interpretation of the red Danish brick facade. The task was to build friendly frameworks around a modern daycare institution in a neighborhood that previously housed the nursing homes in "The Old Town", and where the surrounding building was built in just red bricks

Saint-Gobain has been with all the way. I see great strengths that the manufacturer enters the planning period before joining an entrepreneur, especially when developing such a special facade like this

Despite the bold forms, the building lives up to all rules and wishes for fire safety, silencing and insulation. Saint-Gobain performs extensive, documented tests of both products and comprehensive solutions, which also make it possible to create different building solutions.
