The new, visionary Lemvig Climatorium is a modern interpretation of and tribute to the area’s nature, fishing culture and the local building codes that are all influenced by the local climate conditions.
A team consisting of 3XN, Orbicon and SLA has been selected as the winner of a competition to design the new climatorium in Lemvig, Denmark for developers Lemvig Byråd (Lemvig City Council) and Lemvig Vand og Spildevand (Lemvig Water and Wastewater).
Guests visiting Lemvig Climatorium will first be greeted by a ‘climate landscape’ that almost flows into the building before they enter the climatorium through a wooden entrance that is shaped like a wave with reference to a ship’s hull, the fjord and the waves of the sea.
The u-shaped floor plan has a coherent activity and exhibition area with an open auditorium and multifunctional room that can be included for activities and workshops. Lemvig Climatorium is part of the Coast to Coast Climate Challenge (C2C CC) which is a 6-year climate project that runs till the end of 2022. The overall purpose of the collaboration within the C2C CC is to secure assets from the negative consequences of climate changes.
The main purpose of Lemvig Climatorium is to focus on salt water; to collect knowledge about water which is relevant to the trade and industry as well as to tourism and the local population.
Lemvig Climatorium is scheduled to open in 2020.
