Lighthouse on the west coast
The architectural solution is inspired by the unique qualities of the coastal area and combines sensuality, functionality and local history. In addition to the transformation of the school, the project includes a new extension that acts as a lighthouse, creating a welcoming and open space, signalling Vorupør as a great place to live in and visit, with space for social, cultural and work-related activities for people of all ages.
The facade of the tower consists of a transparent material that provides unique lighting and invites skylight into the building in a high atrium space. The space can be used for various activities, such as art exhibitions and cultural events. The building has a staircase leading to a viewing platform at the top, from where visitors can enjoy a panoramic view over Thy National Park. The artistic detail in the use of translucent material and the incidence of light contribute to the building's unique aesthetics and symbolism as a lighthouse in both concrete and figurative terms.
