The Bellavista apartment building in Klampenborg designed by Arne Jacobsen. Bauhaus architecture. Arne Jacobsen (Arne Emil Jacobsen) - born 1902 died 1971 – was one of Denmark’s most successful architects and designers. He developed the Danish Modern style and contributed to the Architectural Functionalism. Furthermore he was one of the most important Danish designers - especially known for the simple but effective chair designs. In Klampenborg about 10 km north of Copenhagen you will find a large area dominated by buildings designed by Arne Jacobsen. Driving south on the coastal road from Elsinore to Copenhagen you will first note the remarkable Bellevue Theatre. Turning your head at this place and looking towards the sea you will see his design of lifeguard stations on the Bellevue Beach. Nearly connected to the theatre buildings you will meet remarkable designed, white apartment buildings - the Bellavista – and a bit further south a large group of non-detached yellow brick town houses. Arne Jacobsen lived in one of these himself in his older days (the last one facing the coastal road). Before this period of his life he lived in Charlottenlund – a few kilometres closer to Copenhagen – in a larger house.
