Hot and cold with a view

The Isfuglen winter bathing club




Matters & Trold­tekt Acou­stic panels


The winter bathing club “Isfuglen” (King­fi­sher) at Brøndby harbour has created a great club­house. Club members can enjoy cold goose­bumps, hot saunas and a cosy get-toge­ther here.

With its jetties, yachts and leisure acti­vi­ties, Brøndby harbour is a char­ming meeting place for resi­dents living south-west of Copen­hagen. Almost all of the many small wooden houses are painted red. The Isfuglen winter bathing club has also taken up the tradi­tion of rust-red wood.


At the very edge of the harbour cons­truc­tion, the wooden struc­ture catches the eye and welcomes ever­yone who enters the harbour by boat.

Its opening to the water is one of the many quali­ties of Isfuglen. From the large terrace that connects the club­house with the main pier, members can enjoy the view of the open Baltic Sea. There are benches here that invite you to linger.


Inside, Isfuglen offers club members access to a sauna with a pano­r­amic view of the sea and the horizon. Further faci­li­ties are of course chan­ging rooms, showers and toilets.

The main room with a kitchenette is gene­rously dimen­sioned and warm. The walls are made of plywood, the ceiling has Trold­tekt acou­stic panels as clad­ding. Winter bathers like to meet here for morning coffee.


The large windows and glazed doors allow for close contact with the harbour and the sky above. The room is flooded with daylight and the created atmo­sphere is fanta­stic.

The wood and the Trold­tekt panels under­line the warm atmo­sphere and create great inte­rior acou­stics. The inte­rior appears simple and complex at the same time. This is due to the fact that the ceilings reflect the shape of the small gable roofs with which the wooden house ensemble is covered. A mirror wall reflects the great view of the building’s inte­rior. Inside and outside become one.

We did this.
