The Countess Danner Foundation

Frederik VIIs foundation for ageing women of the working class was established by Countess Danner with 52 small one-room flats. Today Dannerhuset experiences a renaissance as the Women's Centre foundation's crisis centre for battered women.
As a brick construction, the building is a typical example of the eclecticism (i.e. free choice of style) of that time, where especially the heavy semicircular gables stand out and call Spanish baroque to mind. The use of both yellow and red bricks emphasises the brick arches.
