The Copenhagen gas and electric company

A stately block completely filling the site to the surrounding streets. In keeping with the style of the time, the facades appear most heavy at the base of the house, while a lighter timber framed storey crowns the upper storeys. The building is a brick construction with a softly modelled entrance from Gothersgade and embedded city arms towards Vognmagergade. Built with flush joints in red brick in alternate stretcher and header bond. Boulders found on the building site are bedded into the base, and the masonry further contains a few granite courses.
