Location: Ringkøbing Fjord, Denmark.
Architect: Johansen Skovsted Arkitekter.
With its distinctive features, the bird sanctuary near the tip of the peninsula in the southern section of Ringkbing Fjord serves as a crucial resting place for migratory birds and is the site of Europe’s oldest continuous bird counts. Previously, there was very little public access to the area, but it has now been made accessible to tourists thanks to the construction of new amenities. A bird hide, watch tower, workshop, walking pathways, and a renovation of the Tipper House research station make up these amenities, which are basic additions to the landscape that resemble instruments. The new structures are envisioned as free-standing objects in the landscape, each with unique qualities and subtly interacting with the environment.
