Profilbillede
KHR Arkitekter was founded in 1946 by Gunnar Krohn and E. Hartvig Rasmussen and is now an architectural practice which stands for unique architecture focusing on innovative ideas, specialist competences and creative development work.


At the beginning of the 1960s KHR was amongst the pioneers who appreciated the need for re-invigoration and innovation in Danish architecture: a fresh approach which resulted in a number of industrial and commercial buildings whose regional genesis was inspired by international movements. One such building was the headquarters of Atlas in west Copenhagen. In the subsequent period KHR was behind a large number of major public and private builds in Denmark and abroad. The crowning glory came in 1971 with Odense University, whose structural idiom and fine detailing set new standards for contemporary architecture. In the late 70s and early 80s KHR developed its competencies within cultural construction projects such as sports complexes, swimming pools and town halls.

Mixed Use

Do industrial buildings have to be dull? Not necessarily, if we rely on this project by Danish architects, KHR Arkitekter. The combined production and administration building for fiberglass manufacturer Fiberline, stands as a piece of identity-generating ‘countryside-art’ by the motorway close to Middelfart. Like a hill the building grows out of the landscape and arches its back against the sky.
