Since 1988, Slagelse Municipality has awarded architecture in and around Slagelse City. Besides the honoured mention, the award includes a bronze plate to decorate the building and a diploma to the client and the architect, acknowledging their accomplishment. By awarding Harboe Visitor Centre, the Municipality wishes to increase the interest in creating architecture and inspire to design extraordinary buildings and urban spaces.
A significant landmark
The Visitors Centre is a significant landmark for the brewery because of its unique location in Skælskør’s maritime surroundings. The centre connects existing administration buildings and merges with the dense waterfront environment to accentuate the character of the site. All Harboe’s activities are gathered in this house as an international platform locally anchored in a building that represents Harboe.
