Kornets Hus Winning Proposal by Reiulf Ramstad Architects
Reiulf Ramstad Architects has won the competition for the Kornets Hus (grain house) proposal in Denmark. Located on the land of an existing farm and bakery, the Kornets Hus is a new centre for the dissemination of the region’s rich food and farming culture.
The building is organized around a simple and flexible plan, which allows for a wide variety of activities and functions to take place. The architectural form is derived from research into the region’s rich landscape, folk culture and agricultural heritage – the centre being defined by its two brick clad light wells, which reinterpret baker’s kilns. The interior is planned to open-up to the vast expanse of wheat fields to the west – framing views outward and opening to terrace. The public spaces are centered around a large bread oven while teaching and exhibition spaces are demarcated by the natural lighting and increased volume of the skylights. – from the architects
