Five Spots in Copenhagen: Michael Anastassiades
Cypriot-born, London-based designer Michael Anastassiades loves Copenhagen. These are his five favourite must-see places
1. Bethlehem Church by Peder Vilhelm Jensen Klint and Kaare Klint.
I regularly travel for work, though I always try to make time to discover hidden gems as part of my architectural exploration of the city. I love how the vision for the design of this masterpiece got so brilliantly translated over two generations, from father to son.
2. Finn Juhl’s own house.
The architect’s own home is always the humblest representation of their vision. There is an incredible similarity in many architects’ own homes from the same period.
3. Arne Jacobsen’s petrol station
The most beautiful quality of this masterpiece is its intimate sense of scale.
4. Dansk Møbel Kunst showroom (not the gallery).
For the best examples in Scandinavian modern furniture in a fantastic setting.
5. Old Copenhagen airport by Vilhelm Lauritzen
I was taken there a few years ago by a dear friend. I wish that level of intimacy would still be around in today’s travel—an environment where you can appreciate such incredible attention to detail.
