Harboe, one of Denmark’s largest breweries, commissioned PLH to design a new visitors centre on the waterfront of Skælskør in South Zealand. Harboe’s intention is to further strengthen the brewery’s international profile by consolidating its various business activities in one location, to create a stronger, unified brand platform.
The new Visitor Centre blends with its maritime surroundings - as if the building is born out of its location on the edge of the fiord. The centre adjoins existing administration buildings and merges with the dense waterfront environment to accentuate the character of the site.
The new construction represents 800 m², while 550 m² of existing buildings are being converted.
In September 2018 The Harboe Visitor's Centre received an award from The Municipality of Slagelse. One of the reasons being "an architecture that beautifully interprets and strengthens the character of the existing buildings and offers beautiful and inspiring meeting rooms and meeting points on the edge between the city and the water."
