Grain House

Grain House

English text (scroll down for Danish):

The Kornets Hus – or grain house, is the realisation of a new centre for the dissemination of the region’s rich food and farming culture.

Located on the land of an existing farm and bakery, the new inspiration centre will offer visitors, locals and employees alike a facility for activity based learning centered around the importance of grain both to Jutland and human civilization. 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 demarked by the natural lighting and increased volume of the skylights.

Grain House Denmark

Danish text:

Hjørring har noen av de eldste sporene av bosetninger nasjonalt og er et etablert kulturlandskap. Kornets Hus er realiseringen av et nytt senter for formidling av Jylland-regionens rike mat-og jordbrukskultur. senteret er plassert i tilknytning til et eksisterende gårdsbruk med bakeri og skal tilby brukerne et anlegg for aktivitetsbasert læring, med utgangspunkt i Kornets betydning både for Jylland og for den menneskelige sivilisasjon.

Bygningen er organisert rundt en enkel og fleksibel plan, som gjør det mulig for et bredt spekter av aktiviteter og funksjoner å finne sted. Den arkitektoniske formen henter inspirasjon fra regionens rike landskap, folkekultur og jordbruksarv – senteret er definert av sine to mursteins kledde lysbrønner, en direkte tolkning av bakerens ovner.

Interiøret er planlagt med en intensjon om å åpne opp mot omkringliggende kornåkrer i vest – innramming utsikten utover videreføres av en terrasse. Publikumsarealet er sentrert rundt en bakerovn i stor skala. Formidlings og utstillingsarealene er lyssatt med naturlig overlys.
