Hørgården Care Centre in Copenhagen

Copenhagen (Denmark)
JJW Arkitekter A/S

Natural slate was selected for this major renovation project in Copenhagen, Denmark, which started in 2015 and finished in March 2019. The Hørgården Care Centre was built in 1974 and was ready to be modernised in order to be able to meet the requirements of a modern and well-functioning care centre.

The architecture firm in charge of the project was JJW Arkitekter A/S. Their goal was providing a building where energy consumption meets the requirements of the energy framework 2020, as well as assuring accessibility and equality.

The renovation was a complete success thanks to the close cooperation between the turnkey contractor NCC Danmark A/S, the housing association 3B and the architecture firm JJW Arkitekter A/S.

Natural slate for a sustainable façade renovation

As energy consumption was a key element in this renovation, natural slate seemed like the perfect fit for the façade’s renovation. Our CUPACLAD® rainscreen cladding system is a fantastic cladding alternative that combines efficiency, durability and modernity.

Natural slate in combination with the rainscreen cladding system turns out as one of the most energy efficient and long-lasting cladding solutions, thanks to both the technical properties of natural slate and the great efficiency of rainscreen claddings.
