If these walls could talk! From beer hall in 1861 to vaudeville in the roaring 1920’s to popular disco night club in the 1970’s – Valencia has seen it all. The historic Vesterbro building has risen from the ashes in a new, soberer guise: as the new hub for The Association of Danish Law Firms!

Dorte Mandrup entered the historic house with an ambition to expose the building so that the unique spatial qualities would reveal themselves, the visual connections and the spatial flow would become evident, and the individual rooms would be rebooted to manageable form.

Valencia's triple high hall is a unique space in the dense neighbourhood of Vesterbro. The hall is the projects central place and provides a framework for Danish’s Lawyers course and conference activities.
A large-scale furniture is located in the hall, which contains both the vertical relationship between basement, ground floor and first floor and a floating meeting box located in a visual open connection with the chamber.

In addition to the hall, the back of the house offers smaller room unit used for meetings, cafeteria and kitchen.
