Jarmers Square

The paving on the large surface is of large slabs of Norwegian Iddefjord granite. Along the edges towards the building, H.C. Andersens Boulevard and Ørstedsparken the bright, smooth surface is bordered by roughly hewn sett paving. Towards Nørre Vold the slabs of granite are elevated above the sett paving making it seem as though the square is floating. In the dark of night this impression is intensified by lighting from beneath the granite.
A group of plane trees is placed in a strict geometrical pattern in the middle of the square, while a row of granite benches are arranged on a more organic principle. The benches have lights at the ends protected by tombac grating. Tombac is also used for the steps towards H.C. Andersens Boulevard.
