Sculptural architectural buildings
Kernehuset was architecturally inspired by IrmaByen’s landmark, the distinctive Kaffetårnet, which is right next door.
Kernehuset was erected as a sculptural architectural building with prominent variations in height and transitions.
The facades appear vertical, thus creating a fine union with the upwards-reaching and distinctive Kaffetårnet. The alternate retracted and protruding facades provide a vivid expression characterised by the interplay of light and shadow, emphasising the building’s strong architectural diversity. The spatial qualities are also highlighted by the elegant flow of the building’s structure, from 7 floors to 6 and 5 floors towards the east.
