Existing Situation: The existing building is monofunctional and has very little interaction with the surrounding community.

New design: The new multifunctional programmes and the existing building are united under one dramatic roof that opens itself up to the city fabric welcoming the community into the new space.

Skævinge Community house

sports and culture

The existing sportshall in the town of Skævinge is transformed into a multifunctional assembly house that combines sports and leisure. The building will create a new common ground for a broad spectrum of users that consist of local performing artists, a knitting club, youth football teams and fitness enthusiasts. Social interaction between the different users will take place in the common space known as ‘Orangeriet’, which will act as the new urban living room for the whole city. The new multifunctional spaces are placed shoulder to shoulder under an elaborate roof scape, allowing inside and outside to merge together. The design is an architectural interpretation of the existing structures with geometrically shaped gables and roofs. Once the building is completed, the new and old will complement each other. The new SKIF will be a central building in a new masterplan for the existing sports park developed by our collaborators 1:1 Landskab.

“It’s such a good and well thought out project, Christensen & Co has come up with. It is nice and functional, and the building is going to be integrated really well into the surroundings. A lot of good, creative thoughts have been thought, and I think that the architects have framed the ideas and visions that we have had. It can be both a beautiful landmark and a strong gathering place for Skævinge, and I think a beautiful house has been designed, where it is not a large hall that is dominant, but an exciting building. ”- Says Hanne Kierkegaard, President for the Sports and Health Committee.

How the project addresses the Sustainable Development Goals

In the project we have worked with issues related to the Sustainable Development Goals. However, the project was not designed to address the global goals. We have worked with issues related to: SDG 3: Good Health and well-being, SDG 4: Quality education, SDG 5: Gender equality, SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation, SDG 11: Sustainable cities and communities, SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production and SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals.
