The Estate Inspector’s Residence at Jægerspris

King Frederik VII’s Foundation in Jægerspris requested Elgaard Architecture to do the restoration and refurbishment of the Estate Inspector’s residence, which is located at 23 Hovedgaden in the town of Jægerspris along with a number of similar buildings. These buildings were all designed by the architect Henrik Hagemann in 1875 and erected the same year. The estate inspector’s residence has been refurbished as four homes for vulnerable women with children.

The project’s architectural idea and restoration approach focused on re-establishing the identity of the estate inspector’s residence as accommodation, and the restoration was carried out carefully to create contemporary and useful interiors.

The building is a fine example of a northern German jamb wall house, which constitutes a small but important part of the historicistic buildings in Denmark.
“Together with several other buildings of the same type, the estate inspector’s residence forms part of a cultural-historical environment around King Frederik VII’s Foundation at Jægerspris. The estate inspector’s residence is a building with great conservation value.”

The jamb wall house on Hovedgaden 23 was originally the estate inspector's house and has also been a doctor’s residence for a period of time. The building was used for institutional and educational purposes by the Municipality of Frederikssund until the restoration. Elgaard Architecture proposed that the building be designed as four homes for vulnerable single women with children.
