The new study environment at the CBS campus in Frederiksberg – formerly home to the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Manufactory – is the result of Henning Larsen Architects' first prize winning proposal for the conversion of the old raw material storage building.
Small, closed rooms for concentrated studying are situated along the old north facade. The floors rising between the north and south facade appear as dynamic study landscapes organised to offer the highest degree of transparency possible - across the building and towards Frederiksberg Gardens.
The former storage building today constitutes a flexible and modern learning environment offering a fine mixture of defined rooms, niches and open study spaces featuring built-in communications technology. A building with a clear and easily accessible layout and at the same time affording enriching spatial variations and views across the floors.
