AART wins the competition for Sønderborg Multicultural Centre

04.02.2015 / In collaboration with Zeni Architects, Alectia and Hoffmann, we have won the competition for the Sønderborg Multicultural Centre in Denmark. A highlight of Sønderborg's new waterfront development, the multicultural centre brings together under one roof several cultural institutions, and epitomises the transformation of the former industrial port into an attractive part of the city where the focus is on learning as well as other cultural and recreational activities.
The multicultural centre is a key element in the realization of Frank Gehry's master plan for Sønderborg harbourfront. It enjoys 360-degree views of both the harbour and the historical city centre, and has been designed to harmise with the surrounding buildings ‒ in particular, the historical Ewers Warehouse, which has been preserved and integrated as a natural element of the new multicultural centre.
