Carlsberg Academy

2018 | Carlsberg, Copenhagen, Danmark

Project: Refurbishment of interior

Scope: 4 sanitary rooms, 2 anterooms, cloakroom and vestibule

Status: On site

Client: The Carlsberg Foundation

Architect: ELGAARD Architecture

Designer: Marianne Tuxen

The original colour scheme will be re-established and new stone floors, as well as inventory, will henceforth compliment the well-proportioned rooms of the Brewer’s old villa in Carlsberg.

Elgaard Architecture is, in collaboration with designer Marianne Tuxen, in charge of the internal refurbishment of sections of The Carlsberg Academy, the former Honorary Residence which brewer J.C. Jacobsen had built for himself and his family in 1847-53 (main building) and 1876-78 (the Pompeii conservatory).

The building is listed and in need of refurbishing and modernisation of the 4 sanitary rooms with anterooms as well as cloakroom and vestibule. During the preliminary investigations interesting archaeological colour findings have appeared, such as walls with marbling, doors with draggings, and hidden slate clad walls.
