Petersen, Ove (1830–92). Danish architect. Influenced by Herholdt and Meldahl, he worked in a free Historicist style, and was a powerful force in the revival of interest in Danish brick buildings (e.g. his Hirschsprung Tobacco Factory, Copenhagen, of 1866, with round arches and ornamental brickwork). With Dahlerup he designed the Royal Theatre, Copenhagen (1872–4), in an Italian Renaissance style, the interior of which is reckoned to be one of the finest works of late-C19 architecture in Denmark.
