An enduring symbol of Denmark

Fire-safe renovation secures the future of this royal palace

Built between 1750 and 1760, Amalienborg is the home of the Danish Royal Family and an important part of the country’s cultural heritage. It comprises four separate palace buildings, one of which, Frederik VIII’s palace, houses the Crown Prince and his family.

This palace underwent a thorough exterior and interior renovation from 2004-2010 before its current occupants moved in. The aim was to create a home that is safe and sustainable to live in, while at the same time assuring the future of this historic building. ROCKWOOL solutions were chosen for their fire safety, a prime concern in a building of cultural significance that is also at the heart of Copenhagen and just a few metres away from neighbouring buildings. Using stone wool in the renovation also reduces energy consumption, cutting running costs and reducing the palace’s impact on the environment, an important concern in a country with a strong focus on sustainability.

Protected by stone wool insulation, all Amalienborg’s occupants can enjoy modern standards of comfort and safety in this centuries-old building.
