Art Nouveau Architecture in Copenhagen
National Romantic Style

Copenhagen is however home to many National Romantic buildings. You can read about some of these buildings and there features on this article on National Romantic buildings in Copenhagen.
Central European Style Art NouveauThere are a few "pure" art nouveau houses in Denmark including Glacisgaarden in Østbanegade in Copenhagen, which was built in 1904 by architect Aage Langeland-Mathiesen. The house is supposedly modeled on a building in Vienna. The Danish architect Anton Rosen has also designed a number of Art Nouveau style buildings in Copenhagen, namely the Hotel Savoy (Løvenborg 1906) on Vesterbrogade and the Metropol building (1908) on Strøget.
