Kanalfronten, Vejle - 2715 Royal Spring

The maritime building project ‘Kanalfronten’ by the inlet of Vejle Fjord, consists of ‘Kanalhusene’ (the Canal Houses) and ‘Parkhuset’ (the Park House) and is part of the 2010 district plan of the municipality of Vejle according to which the harbour is to provide the framework for a residential project with a size of 11,000 m2. The brick “2.7.15 Royal Spring” was chosen for the facades in order to create a vivid harbour housing area where the gradual patination of the naturally solid materials turns into a wonderful play of colours. The grey brick was used with variations in the bond, adding a modern, urban impression to the buildings, and at the same time this brickwork represents a traditional Danish construction material.
