PLH was prequalified to participate in a competition for a new operations center for the utility supplier, Forsyning Helsingør. Our design proposal integrates a new 3-winged, U-shaped building with the existing power plant to the east. The three wings accommodate a wide range of functions: lobby, customer center and office, exhibit and teaching areas, lounge, meeting room, canteen, kitchen, workshop, mechanical room, recycling shop, as well as a covered garage and storage area with changing and bathing facilities.
Facades are designed in simple, Nordic style, conveyed through the use of natural materials and underscored by the calm horizontal progression of window bands and light timber louvers that envelope the new and existing building. This louver screen acts as a unifying architectural element which interacts with the surrounding landscape and its rolling form. The proposal’s choice of materials, it’s sculptural form and clearly defined layout provide a light and hospitable space for employees and users.
