At one of Copenhagen’s absolutely finest addresses, located right in the heart of the beautiful Danish capital city, the recently opened Brønnums Hus Office Club offers high-end offices exceeding all expectations.
The building dates back to 1866 and was built as private apartments for the Copenhagen upper class. Now, 150 years later, Brønnums Hus has been completely restored with an uncompromising sense of detail and respect for history.
For everybody, but not for anybody
All offices, altogether comprising 140 seats, share general services as reception, secretary, personal host, lunch buffet as well as exclusive meeting and conference rooms. Besides that, they share an atmosphere and interior decoration seldom or perhaps even never seen elsewhere. Business psychologists, unit trusts, lawyers, advertising agencies, recruiters and management consultants work side by side with luxury brands and bloggers in the luxurious premises.
Partner Mikkel Küster elaborates: “We accommodate companies wanting their offices and surroundings to leave a lasting impression with business connections and customers. You can say that we are for everybody, but not for anybody.”
A beautiful playground for the creative elite
Brønnums Hus is among the earliest Danish examples on historicism characterized by the use of motives from Italian and French renaissance. From the very start, Brønnums Hus has framed the lives of creatives and intellectuals having a big influence on Danish cultural history.
H.C. Andersen is a perfect example of a member from the cultural elite frequently visiting families living in the building being so rich on picturesque elements drawn by architect Ferdinand Vilhelm Jensen that it was listed as late as in 1995.
The carpet design as a crucial design element
Brønnums Hus truly is shrouded in a unique atmosphere with an interior decoration creating experiences around every single corner. Mikkel Küster explains: “Each carpet is a work of art. Had it not been for the design freedom, we would have missed an extraordinary dimension in the rooms.”
The dark walls in the oval shaped reception welcome the guests and add a luxurious foretaste on what to expect when exploring the rest of this beautiful house. The stilettos almost disappear in the thick, dark carpet tailored to the room.
Karen Lund, designer at ege carpets, explains: “The carpet features an abstract flower from a restored gold wallpaper in the Golden Salon dating back to 1830 that is interpreted into the most beautiful floral silhouette.”
From the reception, you can also catch a glimpse of one of the meeting rooms – the colour theme is dark, dark petrol to frame the beautiful view, one of the best in Copenhagen, a breathtaking sight of Kongens Nytorv and The Royal Danish Theatre.
The carpet in the Golden Salon includes design elements from the wallpaper and radiator cabinets creating an imperial style design with a border and a center design with a beautiful diamond pattern. A very figurative design with a classic composition contrasting the rest of the house endeavoring modern design elements.
The corridors must be highlighted as well. Once again, the wallpaper forms the starting point of the carpet design being an abstraction over the wallpaper’s golden lines placed on a blue-grey background interpreted into a beautiful flooring design expressing an irregular worn canvas with trilateral golden lines.
Moving up, the design look becomes younger. On the fourth floor, white walls make room for vibrant ege carpets from Industrial Landscape by Tom Dixon. The Blur and Smoke designs manifest the powerful expressions of the London inspired collection fabulating about this spectacular city that has, just like Brønnums Hus, really lived a few lives.
