Harteværket Visitorcentre open to the public

Once Denmark’s biggest hydropower plant, now a cultural heritage and family attraction, Harteværket Visitorcentre, Kolding, was opened by Danish minister of energy, utilities and climate Lars Chr. Lilleholt.

Kvorning Design & Communication has provided the exhibition concept, design manuals, signage and dissemination concept. Both concepts and materials have been developed in close collaboration with the staff and management at Harteværket, as well as NIRAS and Baumann Boe-Whitehorn Arkitekter.

Still producing electricity, Harteværket is indeed an authentic setting. In the magnificent old turbine hall and the fascinating basement with its huge, red pipes, both grownups and kids can observe how water is turned into electricity. The centre also features a water playground which lets the little ones play and explore the subject on their own terms.

Team selected to design Danish film city

Together with AART architects, SLA, Ramboll and Kvorning Design & Communication have won the competition to extend Filmby Aarhus and transform it into a creative hub, not only for filmmakers, but for the entire city of Aarhus. The competition was launched in March by Filmby Aarhus and Aarhus Municipality in order to promote a positive development of the film city and add new qualities and experiences to the area where Aarhus harbour meets the city centre.

“The task opens up new opportunities to strengthen the film city’s status as a creative catalyst in Aarhus. By turning the film city inside out and bringing it to eye level with the surrounding city, we aim to create an eventful public venue while promoting new forms of cooperation – all with a focus on creating an integrated creative hub as an active and attractive part of the city,” says Anders Tyrrestrup, a partner at AART architects.
