Køge Culture House 

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Køge Culture house is a robust, and flexible house that challenges cultural life. By combining a rational design language with a simple geometrical framework the project achieves a house which is rich in experiences, variety and inspiring relationships between outside and inside, the open and the closed, the large and the intimate. The house facilitates meeting and exchange between different functions, but also recognizes the importance of each cultural area that maintains a clear identity and character. Therefore the four main programs function each as distinct entities but completely interconnected and as a part of a cultural community.

The city floor is the surface that binds Culture along with the surrounding streets and urban spaces. By treating the ground floor as part of the city’s floor, a continuous flow between the new functions and the urban life is created. You will experience the floor inside the house’s lower level as being part of the city, as a natural extension of the public space inside the House.

Køge Culture House relates to Køge’s scale and character by being both contextual and iconic at the same time. The building is perceived as sensitively incorporated into the city’s eye level when you arrive from the adjacent streets.

Culture Bridge is the house identity key signature. It combines all the functions both vertically and horizontally. The space is rich in experiences, and is both open and close, zoned and intimate. It offers a panoramic view of the city and a more personal and domestic view.
