Danish Architecture Guide

Bruun's Arkade

Bruuns Arkade is located on Bruuns Bro, a bridge spanning across the railway cutting. Constructed of eight modules with curved roofs the building bears clear references to early railway architecture. The facades are of glass to the full height of the modules and fit with sunlight protection of adjustable copper slats. The slats can be operated on an individual basis by the single tenants thus making the facades change appearance throughout the day. A copper covered canopy supported by cast iron columns runs the length of the facades.
At the inside the shops are large rooms with an 11 m floor-to-ceiling height making it possible to insert platforms and balconies according to individual requirements. The only fixed elements are white-painted steel staircases.
