Situation

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.

Identity

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.

Programme

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.

Atmosphere

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.
