The straightforward and playful addition of a series of new building blocks to the former shipyard, gives the new cultural centre in Helsingør a lively expression and reinforces the creativity of the location. The project is based on the expansion and regeneration of the former spaces in tact with changing needs. Adding boxes of new space to the existing structure creates a composite building mass, which is essential for experiencing the city as varied and lively. The infusion of cultural activity to the abandoned shipyard can be seen as a continuation of its former vitality.
The copper-clad additions project out like new building blocks on the old structure, and are of a character, material type and colour that set the existing heavy redbrick buildings into perspective. The additions are placed within, above and crisscrossing the former boundaries of the shipyard.
