The architectural vision of the whole area is to create a green, vibrant and open city campus, where it is nice to live, study, research, play sports and where all residents can meet in a relaxing, green surroundings. In the first stage of the area development plan Rolighdvsej Bycampus will be built. The building will have 519 studio flats for students and 158 flats for young researchers and entrepreneurs. The total living space will be over 20,000 m2 with more than 900 m2 for the businesses on the ground floor. Rolighedsvej Bycampus has been created in a collaboration between the state’s real estate company Freja Ejendomme, the development company NREP, Prins Henriks Skole and Frederiksberg Municipality. The building is next to a noisy street, with residential windows facing to the north. Bay windows solution will ensure maximum daylight penetration into such homes when the sun will be shining from the east and west. The building will aim for DGNB (Danish Green Building Certification) Gold certificate, which represents sustainable construction.

It is going to be our first project with Danish General Contractor CG Jensen A/S and we believe it is just the start of a long lasting business relationship.

“KG Constructions Group” will be responsible for the design, project management, production, transportation and installation of almost 9 000 m2 of unitized and more than 3 000 m2 of stick curtain walls. Both will be with anodized, perforated 3mm aluminum sheet claddings, anodized aluminum lamellas, ceramic tiles and Western Red Cedar or Pine thermo-wood vertical lamellas.

The building shape is very unique which is the reason why from 799 facade units almost a half (47% -383 units) will be corner elements. The main challenge of this project: many different types of materials, products and special colours, which have to blend in and create one common design entity. Rolighedsvej Bycampus will all palette of special and never seen materials and colours: non-catalogue specially created for the project HAI Horsens colours; special forms of ceramics, perforated and embossed metal sheets, 2 types of vertical aluminum lamellas, 2 types of horizontal lamellas, vertical timber lamellas, french balconies and many more.
