The Science Centre Experimentarium is situated in an old bottling hall in Tuborg Havn, Copenhagen.
However they have outgrown the existing facilities and needs the double amount of square meters already accessible. So how can we transform and extend the old bottling hall into a playful and adventurous frame for an innovative Science Centre? Using the oversized concrete structure in the existing bottling hall we can extend the building by building upwards. We see the combined functions as a ‘mini city’ of science when joined together at the site. All functions are wrapped around a continuous exhibition space – an interactive playground for learning and exploring science.

Experimentarium has outgrown their current facilities and they cannot relocate during the extension. How can we transform the old bottling hall into a modern Science Cente?
The new main exhibition hall is transformed into a lively and adventurous series of connected spaces
All facilities are wrapped around the main exhibition halls as the belly of the building creating a dense "science city" as the new frame for an innovative Science Center
The box is the perfect flexible frame for creating hyper specialized exhibition environments where light, indoor climate, sound, atmosphere and exhibition build up can be individually controlled
The rooftop becomes a terraced landscape, a series of individualized exhibition terraces to be explored
