Frederiksberg Centret was built as the first building in a major urban extension on the former railway site, which is now fully developed and linked by beautiful new spaces and a green link in the form of an urban park stretching from Nørrebro to Frederiksberg.
Frederiksberg Centret is located on the former railway site, which is now fully developed and linked by beautiful new spaces and a green link in the form of an urban park stretching from Nørrebro to Frederiksberg.
Frederiksberg metro station has been built directly adjacent to the shopping centre, and an urban environment has been created around Frederiksberg Centre, including Frederiksberg Gymnasium and CBS and the new metro station in the Cityringen.
The Frederiksberg Centre's interior will be experienced as part of the street scene, where urban life takes place both in the Frederiksberg Centre's interior and around the centre.

Frontrunner in shopping centre design
KHR Architecture has been at the forefront of shopping centre design in Denmark with the design of Rødovre Center, Lyngby Storcenter and Magasin du Nord and Nuuk Center. Currently KHR is involved in the transformation of the Kronen shopping centre in Vanløse into a dynamic city centre.
Frederiksberg Centret has a central role as a commercial centre for the district, which has only been reinforced by the metro. Since its construction in 1996, the area around Frederiksberg Centre has undergone a major urban transformation.
The unifying idea for the façade design and the exterior appearance of Frederiksberg Centre is the idea of a market square
The new urban life that has emerged and is emerging around the new educational institutions, the metro and a new green bicycle route through the district, makes both the exterior areas and the Frederiksberg Center areas, active, urban areas.
A covering of the Frederiksberg Centre itself, including the parking areas on the roof; but also as a covering of parts of the square to the south in front of the Frederiksberg Centre, so that covered square areas can be created for flea markets or green squares.
The long and closed facade areas along the south and north facade of the centre appear alive and moving like a large tent construction
At the same time, however, adapted to the existing building figure and its modular structure. The membrane is semi-transparent, creating a visual play between the light rear wall. By establishing a light seal between the climate shell and the outer layer of cladding, an urban, spatial experience of the area south of the centre is emphasised.
