Everything is unusual, from its architectural style to design and materials, which makes this building unique. The entire structure is developed with a Nordic approach by using low-carbon materials. With the circular design principles, the Fritz Hansen Pavilion revolves around daylight. 

However, the most interesting thing about this architecture is that it is designed to be disassembled. This simply means that all the materials and elements used in the structure can be reused elsewhere.

Henning Larsen opens Fritz Hansen pavilion’ with a simple, shell-like structure. This place is the perfect spot for Fritz Hansen’s furniture exhibition. Architects follow a Nordic approach and have used natural elements and high-quality materials to create a natural and sustainable design.  

The entire building is made from standardized parts that are later bolted together to form a shape. As we already told you, it is specifically designed for disassembling, and this construction method will simplify and speed up the disassembly process.

The project’s main theme is to build a sustainable project, and with that mindset, all the construction elements and materials have been selected. Every part of the pavilion can be reused and even reassembled again into a smaller version in the future.

Eva Ravnborg, Market Director Denmark, Partner at Henning Larsen, said, “Celebrating the 150 years anniversary of Fritz Hansen, we wanted to create a spatial experience that makes a sustainable home for the furniture it exhibits. A facilitator for the design of Fritz Hansen. Built-in solid wood, the pavilion is inspired by the garden it is situated in, creating a hybrid space with fluid transitions between inside and out.”

Since the 1920s, Designmuseum Danmark has been considered one of the finest Rococo buildings in Copenhagen. Originally this building was built in 1752 to work as a Royal Frederik Hospital. In 1926, architects Ivar Bentsen and Kaare Klint repurposed and transformed this space into a museum.

And around a century later again, the space was transformed into Fritz Hansen Pavilion by Henning Larsen. Today this structure is introduced as a modern take on its historical surroundings while incorporating natural elements. What do you think?

This shell-like structure is mostly transparent. You might be wondering why architects did this. The reason behind this is to invite plenty of natural light into the space. This will also increase plant life, a part of an exclusive exhibition of Fritz Hansen’s furniture.

Eva Ravnborg explained, “We wanted to create a pavilion that reflects the Fritz Hansen design philosophy of design that stands the test of time while at the same time minimizing the use of virgin materials. Therefore, the pavilion is crafted from standardized parts that are bolted together using standard tools, which helps to simplify and speed disassembly. All parts can be reused, and the pavilion can also be reassembled in a smaller size if needed.”

The architects chose a special type of timber known as Glulam or Glued laminated timber to construct the 350-square-meter pavilion. Glulam timber is widely known for its sustainability and is traditionally used for buildings in Nordic countries.

Let’s talk about the exterior or facade materials. To build transparent skin on the outer surface, translucent polycarbonate was used. This material will allow natural light in. on the interiors, plywood is used to form walls and various built-in furniture.

To ensure minimal waste, low-carbon materials have been used so that in the future, they will be reused again. Nothing is glued or welded, so all the parts can be easily disassembled and could be used to create some other structure like in the reconstruction of Fritz Hansen’s headquarters.
