For something to be a little out of the ordinary, it doesn’t have to be a total renovation or replacement of every single element in a building. It could be that the project is about adapting the new elements to the excisting building, it could be that the materials are exclusive or it could be that the choice of colors are unique.
Project Husumparken in Rødovre is a little bit of all three catagories, because the task at hand was to replace all the exsiting plank doors with new and contemporary plank doors with electric strike plate locks. In other words: The new doors had to resemble the old ones, but in a new and improved way and better quality.
The materials used for this project was mahogany for the massive planks in the doors, colored in creme white on the inside, in a nuance of blue-green on the outside, and with visible rust-resistant screws colored in the same blue-green color. Furthermore, we’ve added rust-resistant aluminum plates on both the inside and outside, specially made for these doors.
The project in total consisted of 29 identical elements, so the uniformity of the apartment blocks and the overall impressions were intact.
