Cityringen Henningsens Plads | Copenhagen

Ceramic tiles from MOEDING were used for the facade design in seven of the 17 new metro stations. At the station Poul Henninges Plads, brick tiles in two different shades of grey were used. Arranged in a staggered formation, these form an exciting yet clear structure on the large-scale facade surface. The brick plates, made from clay and loam, are part of the mounted and ventilated LONGOTON® Rapid System and can be assembled or disassembled without an assembly sequence.

We opted for ceramic tiles from MOEDING because they offer a pronounced material and surface structure in large formats with a relatively low weight / area ratio and a heavy-duty, robust, vandal-resistant and aging-resistant cladding. The ceramic facade is a non-metallic cladding that allowed us to lay antenna cables for radio communication in the 150 millimeter space behind the panels.
