Nyboder was built during the reign of King Christian IV to house the sailors in his navy. In one of the original single storied houses visitors can get an impression of the humble conditions under which a Nyboder-family lived at the beginning of the 20th century.
Right from the start, this was a privileged area to live in. Nyboder had a private hospital, private schools, and a police force of its own. In return for these privileges, all male residents were obliged to perform military duty for a period of up to 20 years.
The Nyboder Houses are unique in the sense that houses built for ordinary people do not usually last for centuries.
One of the very first houses built by the King is situated at 24, Sankt Pauls Gade, and contains the Nyboder Mindestuer (Memorial Rooms). These may be visited on Sundays 11am - 2pm.
4,5 tons of KefaRid has been used in the renovation of Nyboder in Copenhagen, built in the year 1631 onwards.
In the period 2008 - 2014 there was applied more than 4.500 kg of KefaRid on the walls in Nyboder, equivalent to more than 6000 m2 wall surface.
In the summer of 2013 was "The Memorial Rooms", in one of the oldest buildings from 1631 surface treated with KefaRid, tinted in the same shades as the original distempers.
Here are some fotos from "The Memorial Room"
