Aarhus International Sailing Centre
It’s hard to imagine a more attractive location for a building dedicated to sailing.
The sailing centre connects a new part of the city with the water via a waterfront promenade.
In 2018, the Danish Crown Prince Frederik inaugurated the new Aarhus International Sailing Centre on the city’s waterfront. The large pale grey concrete building is located right at the entrance to the marina and the harbour for wooden boats in Aarhus.
The new sailing centre was designed by Entasis.
The construction of the Aarhus International Sailing Centre is its architecture as well.
From the outside, the sailing centre resembles an industrial hall with huge sliding doors and visible structural elements.
A completely tectonic design. The structures are the architecture, yet there is one feature that makes the building stand out from many industrial facilities – the high degree of transparency.
Troldtekt acoustic panels go incredibly well with the raw concrete.
The same unsentimental design characterises the inside of the building, and the high-ceilinged hall accommodates large numbers of dinghies, which can easily be wheeled in and out fully rigged.
The administration department with offices, conference rooms and club facilities is situated to the south, while the first floor has a lounge with views of the bay. The south facade also features a large outdoor balcony, which is raised above the main entrance.
