Flintholm Care Home
The district around Flintholm Station in Frederiksberg is rapidly changing from an industrial area to a more conventional urban and residential area. In brief, a new city district is emerging. Flintholm Care Home is a five-storey ellipse-shaped building complex with fifty dwellings for elderly people. The four top levels are used for residential purposes, whereas the ground floor contains the main entrance area and all service functions and staff facilities, along with access to the park. The building complex was designed by Frederiksen & Knudsen Architects on the basis of the theme "Focus on Community". That the focus is in fact on the community of residents is evident in many ways, one being that there are very few conventional hallways and corridors. Instead, the architects have designed large communal areas that start immediately outside each individual housing unit.
