Library and cultural center, Open design competition
Client: Municipality of Helsingør
Helsingør’s shipyard lies in the city center just off by the railroad station. After the closing down of its main operations it has become a subject for redevelopment into a center for culture, education and creativity. By letting a new development mature within the area and interact with the old building masses, functions and relationships are woven together in a new way. New lines of communication and exchange are formed which act to connect the area with the surrounding city. Part of the strategy involves forming landmarks and signature buildings to orient one’s place in the city and bring variation to an otherwise homogenous brickwork architecture.
