The Cold War Bunker REGAN Vest reaches new milestone
Last Friday, we celebrated the topping-out ceremony for Denmark’s new Cold War Museum REGAN Vest, which we are developing together with Thøgersen & Stouby, SLA, and NIRAS for Nordjyske Museer and Ejendomsfonden REGAN Vest.
Here, construction workers, developers, architects, and many more showed up to celebrate as the historical opening of the Cold War bunker REGAN Vest – one of Denmark’s best-kept secrets - is coming closer. Among the speakers were Nordjyske Museer’s Chairman of the Board and Deputy Chairman of Ejendomsfonden REGAN Vest, Per Lyngby, The deputy mayor of Rebild Kommune, Jeppe Ugilt, and our very own architect and associated partner Mikkel Seier Christoffersen, who took to the stage to share the architectural thoughts and visions for the new visitor and exhibition building.
In his speech, Mikkel said: “The invisible REGAN Vest gets a visible addition with the welcome and exhibition building. What was secret and hidden underground is now being opened, and the building we are celebrating today will be a visible testimony that the story of the Cold War must never be forgotten but must instead be communicated. And that message has unfortunately become completely unreal and important.”
The new visitor and exhibition building is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
