Arne Jacobsen’s Pavilions – Enghaveparken
The restoration of Arne Jacobsen’s pavilions in Enghaveparken in Copenhagen has been completed. The pavilions’ original shelter and toilet facilities have been re-established and restored to mirror their original, romantic look with wooden shingles on the roof and verdigris green, whitewashed facades. Elgaard Architecture was architectural adviser on the project.

Overall, Arne Jacobsen’s pavilions in Enghaveparken express the transition between romantic Neo-classicalism and Modernism; a design trend that also manifested itself in Jacobsen’s single-family homes from 1928-29. The pavilions were designed and erected in 1928 and were Arne Jacobsen’s first project.
