The historic settlements of the South Sami culture, with its elementary shapes, its materials and ways of construction, have inspired RRA to this distinctive project. The aim was through translation of this to create one plant, to achieve a varied and articulated continuations of rooms, each with contact to the landscape, the Cultural Center’s outdoor area or inbetween the rooms themselves.

The building’s architectural shape, plan and its material brings the culture and the sites characteristics together as one unit.
