CBS Kilen in Frederiksberg has brought new life to the surrounding area.Experience the architecture (and the atmosphere) for yourself when the award-winning building opens its doors during Open House.
The distinctive shape of Kilen lives up to its name, which means “The Wedge” in English. Designed by architectural firm Lundgaard & Tranberg Arkitekter, Kilen stands on two grassy hillocks and is definitely angular and wedge-shaped. At least on the outside. From a distance, the first thing you notice is the varied facade comprised of vertical slats in wood, colored glass and copper.
Interior Featuring Soft, Organic Shapes
Once you step inside Kilen, however, the look is anything but angular. When entering the building, you’re met by a five-story-high atrium in soft, organic shapes. Giant circular windows let in light from above, casting both soft and sharp sunlight down and forming interesting contrasts of light and shadow in the space. Two glass elevators and an elegant winding staircase connect the various floors.
See It for Yourself
