Petersen Tegl supplied 4,000 Junior and 1,200 broken Kolumba bricks for the Krabbesholm workshop. The bricks were laid with lime mortar, so that they could be removed again and re-used in later workshops. Photo: Martin Schubert
Petersen Tegl took part in Denmark's annual design festival – 3daysofdesign – again this year. The setting was the Petersen Tegl Studio, which also marked its first anniversary at the same time.
This year, we asked two architects who have worked very closely with the brickworks to present their very different and exciting projects.
Francesca Torzo - Z33
Architect Francesca Torzo talked about her latest work to reach completion. The façade and courtyard on Z33 – an extension to the House for Contemporary Art and Architecture in the Belgian town of Hasselt – are clad in specially moulded, handmade rhombus-shaped bricks.
3DOD - Kristian Winther
Architect Kristian Winther of Arup talked about designing Cityringen (M3). Four of the stations on the new Metro line in Copenhagen have underground walls clad in a customised version of Kolumba.
The two projects and the specially developed bricks are on display in the Petersen Studio until 1 November.
Petersen Tegl takes part in the Danish design event, 3 DAYS OF DESIGN, in Copenhagen from the 3rd - 5th September 2020. Join us at PETERSEN TEGL STUDIO at Amerika Plads 25B. Opening hours 10:00 - 17:00.
