Ceremonial Room Copenhagen
Regional Winner Western Europe - Daylight in Buildings
The project raises the question “where do you go to celebrate the major turning points in life in a non-religious setting?” Daylight drives the design of the project, employed in three settings: from the west facade, with a layered construction of brick beams and columns; a glass facade and a fabric screen around the central ceremonial, with vertical light shafts; and the movement of the sun in the room, changing with time, day and season.
What the jury found in this project was a very detailed look at a building in which the concept of daylight in the architecture − through form and tectonics – was convincing. The project is exemplary in the way it works with sections and plans. It is beautifully illustrated with delicate hand-made sketches and was carefully tested in a scale model. The project contains all the virtues of a strong idea and excellent execution.
