  • Through all time and across cultures man has used special and import spaces for ceremonies that mark lifes big events. Meaningful spaces that provides a significant frame the ceremonies and rituals that marks the transition between life stages. This project focus on the transition between life and death that takes place at a funeral, and how this ceremony creates a link between the past, present and future. In an increasing multicultural and secular society we need an alternative to the church and other religious spaces whereby this project aims to create a meaningful setting for the last goodbye regardless of faith or beliefs - religious or non-religious.

    The project is placed in a post-industrial area in Copenhagen harbour and contains three pavillons each focusing on a different phase of the parting and sorrow; a house for the funeral ceremony, a house for the social interactions accompanying a funeral and finally a berth from where you sail out and scatter the ashes in the ocean. Finally the project contains an establishment of a green pocket in the post-industrial area that creates contemplative urban space near Copenhagen Harbour, where people can return to commemorate their deceased or simply find peace in the hectic city without necessary connection to the deceased or any ceremonies.

    House for Ceremonies creates a peaceful and solemn space for people to show their respect at the funeral. The circular ceremony room creates a democratic connection between the deceased and the mourners.

    The House for Gaterings has a more extroverted appearance and opens towards square from where you see the city and the towers of Copenhagen.

    The small berth is placed on the corner of the site oriented towards the larger sea, where a corten steel shelter creates a protected and private outdoor space from where you sail out and scatter the ashes.

  • Over the past few decades the constitution of family has changed, bringing with it new family pat-terns: from single parents and weekend children to step-parents and siblings forming the modern family unit. The idea of a family as a rather static and closed institution has gradually changed into a more flexible organism, where the number of residents in a family home expands and diminishes on a weekly basis. The aim of the project is to develop the architectural framework for the family patterns of today, where the physical surroundings can easily adjust to the current family status. Whether you are few or many, the house should never appear to be empty. The residents, however, should always maintain the option to participate or withdraw from the social context in the house or within the surrounding neighborhood.

    Each house faces a social pedestrian street, while opening up in the back to a more natural and open space. The porch on the front of all the houses supports the idea of a social environment in the street, a place where you can sit and meet your neighbors on their way to work or school. The ground floor of the house continues this social aspect with the kitchen in connection to the street. The first floor holds smaller rooms and niches for a more private and contemplative space, although these too can be transformed into one open space.

  • As the complexity of everyday life grows the need to compensate with an hour of zen and harmony becomes more necessary. The tension between the hectic city and the personal rest, which should take place in a yoga center, is the basis for this project. The yoga center appears as a solitary object, detached from the packed typical Copenhagen block, with planted walls as a green backdrop. The building is situated at the far end of the site, away from the street, supporting the existing void.

    The focus of the project is a special support for the transition from the extroverted to the introvert-ed state of mind. The overall architectural context is deliberately a very simple and clear design, as a counterweight to the overwhelming stimuli encountered in daily urban life. The simple design is further supported by the simplification of the visitors lookout, which opens into the two-dimensional surfaces in the form of the green wall and the sky. The viewer is deprived of depth and perspective to support focus within the mind and concentration on the inside.
