The Port of Copenhagen is linked direct to the Royal Theater building. A long quay made of wooden planks leads up to the monumental edifice designed by Copenhagen's own Lundgaard & Tranberg Architekten. The brickwork facades are inspired by the shape of the traditional warehouses in the Danish harbor metropolis. The handmade building bricks were produced by Petersen Tegl and are sized some 53-centimeter in length, are some 11 centimeters wide but only 4 centimeters high. For each square meter, about 40 of the Kolumba bricks were required. The bricks are suitable for masonry work and also for use in paving. Meanwhile, the company has developed many new color variations that planners and developers can now choose from.
