Kvorning to tell the tales of Norwegian national icon

Kvorning Design & Communication wins the assignment of a draft project and the main communication concept for the forthcoming Norwegian experience and science centre ‘Anna Karoline’ – Norsk jektefartsmuseum. The centre will convey the heritage of Norwegian jekt shipping and will be located by the Bodø lake in north-western Norway.

For more than 400 years the jekt was an important freight vessel for local tradesmen and its wide body and sails witness of the local boatbuilding traditions of the coast stretching from Vestlandet and northwards. The world’s only remaining Nordlandsjekt ‘Anna Karoline’ will form a central part in the dissemination of the Norwegian jekt shipping heritage.

The draft project will be realized in the beginning of 2016 and the main project will be developed as Rintala Eggertsson Arkitekter, Oslo, finalizes the blueprints for the stunning buildings.

The experience and science centre will be completed during the Spring of 2018.

Kvorning wins exhibition assignment for the Smack and Nature Centre at Strynø in the archipelago of Southern Funen

The archipelago is the world’s largest, flooded glacial landscape with settlements and forests under water. 55 islands and islets with a natural and cultural heritage of national value make up this fascinating archipelago. Landing this contract, Kvorning Design & Communication is now looking forward to convey amazing stories and facts so families can appreciate this treasure to the full.

Kvorning’s winning concept, ‘Above the islands and the sea’ is a thematic abstraction, which functions as a stepping stone, inviting visitors into the nature and the cultural landscape. The exhibition will prepare youngsters as well as adults for the adventures to come as they head out to see the shallow waters, the birds, the nature, the island of Strynø and the surrounding archipelago. A labyrinthine exhibition space for children will woo them into the universe of the archipelago and encourage them to discover the intriguing experiences indoors as well as outdoors.

The new exhibition of the Smack and Nature Centre at Strynø will be established on behalf of Naturturisme I/S Svendborg. The exhibition will open during the summer of 2016.

Shortlisted for ‘New Trelleborg’

Kvorning Design & Communication made the shortlist in the contest for the project ‘New Trelleborg’. Five teams of architects have been invited to the second stage of the competition and will draw up their designs for the project. Kvorning Design & Communication are working with Henning Larsen Architects facing competition from Rambøll, SLA Landscape and NOUS Scandinavia among others.

“The Viking Castle is one of the finest fortresses built by Harald Bluetooth and it deserves the finest dissemination of its history. It must be a special assignment for the five teams to draft a design for a new visitor centre at such an intriguing location. I expect that the Viking age fortress at Trelleborg will be complemented by the very best solutions that our modern architects can accomplish”, says Director of the Danish National Museum Per Kristian Madsen.

The winning proposal will be announced on 29. January 2016, and the visitor centre at New Trelleborg is to be completed in 2020.
