Praksis transform 19th century barn into a culture centre

The foundation Realdania assigned Praksis the role to reconstruct Slotfeltlade into a small cultural centre. The owner is HRH Prince Joakim.

Slotfeltlade is situtated on the outskirts of Møgeltønder , near Sønderhaven, close to an estate and close to an area of marshland. The barn was built in the 1870's.

The old barn, with its unique roof construction is taking on a complete renovation. Externally the barn has a thatched roof again. Internally, Praksis has designed a flexible exhibition space, which tells visitors the story of the Golden Horns, Møgeltønder, Schackenborg og Slotfeltlade by using modern technology. Furthermore, the space will offer an environment for changing exhibitions and music events.

Praksis has also developed a terrazzo made from a ballast of large fieldstones from the local area. The terrazzo is cast in one piece and will cover the entire floor of 300m2. Three movable boxes made of black fibreglass furnish the floor space. These include toilets, a cinema and a digital projector showing the Golden Horns developed by Vizoo.

Three short films about Slotfeltlade, the history of Møgeltønder and Schackenborg were produced for the cinema. During the day the building is open to the public as the lighting, films and projector are activated by visitors via motion sensors. The lighting is designed by Jesper Kongshaug.   

Slotfeltlade opened April 2011.

Nominated for the Nordic Architectural Award; Arkitekturmässan Awards 2011.
