An enduring, cultural landmark using WICONA facades.
In 2011 one of Denmark's great cultural institutions, K.B. Hallen, burned to the ground. Since the hall was ruined, it was decided to demolish the building. In the new design, Christensen & Co. Architects has drawn inspiration from the original building, updating the design but making sure that the new design still rings true among the memories of the local population. WICONA has supplied both façades, doors and windows for the new KB Hallen.
In its new form, K.B. Hallen will actively contribute to the cultural life of the local area. Its open façade secures that the pulsating life of the arena can be seen and that they become part of the surroundings. Because of the big glass façades, bypassers are easily attracted to the venue by the light and life.
The building façades consist of WICONA's WICTEC 50 systems. It creates a slim lookingwith maximum transparency both exterior and interior. The WICONA WICLINE 75evo window system and WICSTYLE 75 evo door systems was also used for the project due to its top rated thermal insulating performance. The 40-meter wide and eye-catching facade is central to the new multi-arena. Through the large gable, light is brought to the building, with openness to the city. The WICONA facade elements rise up to 8.5 meters in height.
