The New Carlsberg Foundation – Facades and Windows
As lead consultants, we carried out restoration of the facades and the windows on the New Carlsberg Foundation’s headquarters, Bryggergården/the Brewer’s Estate, in central Copenhagen. The Brewer’s Estate consists of a front house facing Brolæggerstræde and a side and back house. The complex was erected in the years following Copenhagen’s second great fire in June 1795.

A House with a Visionary Past
In 1826, the brewer Christen Jacobsen Nørkier bought the buildings in Brolæggerstræde, and two decades later his son, I. C. Jacobsen, made his first attempts to make bottom-fermented beer there, thereby establishing the basis for the Carlsberg Breweries.
In 1913, the Brewer’s Estate was handed over to the New Carlsberg Foundation, and since 1973 it has been its headquarters.
