The Hinge, Aarhus, Denmark

Project Overview

It is characterised by its tall buildings, but where the island meets the inner city, a new building will emerge. The new city gate ‘The Hinge’ will create a landmark in the transition between the historic town and the new district.

The Challenge

How to thermally break the reinforced concrete structural columns supporting the entire building with a non-combustible material?

The Solution

450mm diameter, 25mm thick STRUKTRA TBF plates with enlarged holes through which the steel reinforcement could pass through to ensure a structurally robust connection.

The Outcome

Fast and on-time delivery and easy installation contributed to this inspiring building.
