Designed by Finn Juhl

Finn Juhl is one of Denmark’s most famous architects, known for his bold, sculptural forms and ultra-refined detailing. Unlike his fellow classmates, Juhl entered the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Architecture in Copenhagen in 1930 without any experience as a craftsman.

What he lacked in structural experience, he made up for in vision, crafting his designs from an artist’s mindset. Juhl’s forms perfectly balance sculptural and elegant expression with functionality.
