The main concept of Fanø Beach House is to create a sustainable, architecturally sensible building based on a wind as a theme on a carefully chosen place without any protected species or international restrictions.
– A place that embraces all the activities of the beach and the surrounding nature. A place that acts as a natural centre of attraction for both locals and visitors.
– A place that tells the story of the many kites of the International Kite Festival, a spectacle that attracts and fascinates thousands of visitors every year.
– A place that will be placed in close connection to existing buildings and tourism-related activities, where people are moving around and present already.
The building will place Fanø firmly onto the world map, and a place that will become an important part of the continued development of the island and its identity both inwards and outwards. Not just because the location is unique and the facilities unprecedented, but because the building concept and architecture has no counterpart anywhere. A place that acts as a natural place of gathering for everybody, both locals and visitors.
The idea is to establish a sustainable building placed close to the beach on Fanø. The building will be unique in both form and function, unlike anything else. A building that conveys the story of the kites that fill the beaches of Fanø every year, and at the same time create a base for a wide range of activities.
A building that combines a static building with mobile pavilions. A flexible building that can adapt to future trends and developments.
