A double-window made to give the appearance of balcony doors. Note the beautifully sculpted figurines with curly hair and crown. The lower half of the figurines simulates ancient, long dresses.
The smaller top windows are arched adding to the appearance of being doors.
Constructed in 1885. Frederiksborggade
Same building in Frederiksborggade as on the previous photo, but one floor higher up. Bars with ancient Roman or Greek figures decorate the sides.
Also note the rectangular finish at the top of the windows.
First floor of an old building made by red brick. Each double window is crowned with a triangular and alternately decorated with a male or female head. Købmagergade.
Second and third floor of the same building as the previous photo. The windows are different on each floor.
Second floor windows are double height and decorated on top with angled brick inside a decorated arch. The windows on the third floor are single height with a frise running the full length across and decorated with alternating fake pillars and fruit frescos. Købmagergade.
An excellent example of how dull, simple and utilitarian man can make the windows of a building. With a few exceptions, all windows are simplistic and undecorated. Staunings Plads.
Restored red brick beautifully accented with white tiles. Arched windows add to the flavor and create uniqueness. Jamers Plads.
This building has an abundant amount of window decoration although the style is slightly confusing.
Most windows are rectangular except those with arches on first and fourth floor. The arches are however only decorative on the fourth floor.The use of white brick and tiles around the windows pull attention to the design.
Note also the corner windows on the left. Jamers Plads.
A nice karnap covered partially in copper with gilded decorations. the top doubles up as a small platform. Nørre Voldgade.
Simple design but notice the neat decoration above the slightly arched windows. Small addition with large effect.
The center doors are interesting. If this photo had been taken in The Netherlands the door would have been the entryway for all large furniture, hoisted up by a robe attached at the top of the building to overcome the obstacle of the narrow stairwells. But this is Denmark? Nørre Voldgade 10.
Great mixture of copper, red- and white brick/tiles. Note the small gargoyle-like figures at the corners.
The window is filled with Christmas decorations -simulated snow in the window sill and a larger star higher up. Nørre Voldgade 12.
Granted that the windows are quite simple, but look at the curvature of the line-up of the windows! Either the house has sunk at both ends or the bricklayer forgot to bring his straightening tools. Teglgård Stræde.
Simple windows but with a nice touch of gilded flower decorations on top. Note also the small windows at the basement level. Nørre Voldgade.
Consider how much effort went into these seemingly simple windows. First, the indentation in the rectangular outer frame added quite some work to the designer and bricklayers. Second, the arched windows and bricks soften the strict straight lines hardened further by the dark brick. Finally, the nice touch of adding the two circular decorations complements the entire frame. Nørre Voldgade.
There are four indentations in this window frame alone. The entire frame is again framed by a row of brick with an embedded six-pointed star. N Zahles Gymnasium on Nørre Voldgade.
Three different styles have applied on this building on the corner of Nørre Voldgade and Vendersgade. Over and above being a decorative element, the vertical (white) section emphasizes the symmetry of the structure. The horizontal, simulated balcony at the lower ledge defines the beginning (2nd floor) of the structure and creates clear lines.
Finally, each level has its own style of window; the lowest (2nd floor) level is rectangular crowned by a triangle, the center level is arched with exceptionally soft (thick) design lines and the top floor has a traditional rectangular shape with strict lines.
Sandstone building with standard windows had it not been for the indented, arched part above the windows, decorated with laurels.
Indented windows with circular decorations. Along the top of the windows is a row of connected lilies. the crisscross brick pattern maked the building stand out. Frederiksborggade near Kultorvet.
A beautiful example of a large, arched window neatly framed with sandstone. Note the three small rosettes underneath each window section as well as the decorative rosette between each section. The pattern on the horizontal section running above the windows is indistinct. Frederiksborggade near Kultorvet.
Another great application of arches in an "ordinary" window. Look carefully: The entire frame has one arched top, but it contains three arched windows and has seven decorative arches below the window section. Moreover, the use of a few angled, dark brick in the frame itself creates an interesting design accent. Frederiksborggade near Kultorvet.
Finally some wonderfully curved windows. This small part of the building has lines and curves galore. The pointed roof tops, the curved windows, the straight brick interlaced with angled brick and so on.
There are literally thousands of other interesting windows around Copenhagen -go explore on a quiet day and you'll be amazed. Rosengården by Kultorvet.
