Elsinore Culture Yard

Structural Designer

Soren Jensen Consulting Engineers

Client Name

Elsinore Municipality


Located in Elsinore, Denmark the project is a conversion of an old shipyard to a new cultural yard with library, concert hall and other facilities. The project included complete conversions of two buildings and the addition of a further three.

Essential for the success of the project was the structural assessment and creative reuse of two existing buildings. The new buildings rely on their radical design and fast execution on state-of-the-art structural analysis and fabrication methods.

The resulting architecture is inspiring and has successfully revitalised the formerly derelict site.

Judge's comment:

"A fine example of what can be achieved by a versatile team of structural engineers demonstrating flair and excellence in the use of new and existing materials, dynamics, buildability, specialised construction methods and a respect for their heritage."
