The Carlsberg plant is now a major industrial area renovation project: the industrial heritage there coexists with new buildings, and together they make up a mixed development area. An example of a particularly close fusion of the old and the new is the Theodora House complex. He appeared on the site of a warehouse of brewer's yeast, next to the "theatrical" Elephant Gate.
Only one wing was preserved from the warehouse, but the architects replaced the disappeared parts with residential buildings, that is, the historical structure of the building was restored. The warehouse is distinguished by patterned brickwork: brick is generally characteristic of Carlsberg factory buildings. The architects chose a similar brick for the external facades of the new buildings - also Danish, classic red, and again used ornamental masonry. However, it was important for them to avoid the feeling of "copy", so they used asymmetrical, painterly, using the play of light and shadow patterns - uniquely modern. In addition, to create a special plasticity, they used bricks of a special, curved shape, made especially for their project.
But this is how the residential buildings look from the outside, and into the courtyard they go out with white facades with a lattice of wooden slats: it is intended for climbing plants, which will soon give the courtyard in the center of Copenhagen a romantic and suburban, not at all urban look.
In addition to offices in the old part, the complex includes 58 apartments ranging from 57 to 183 m2. The largest are five duplexes. Most of the apartments have balconies, and seven even have roof terraces.
