– architectural research workshop project in Skagen

Construction began on the Hotel Strandly in the early 20 century. Over 100 years the architecture of the building itself has grown like an organic form, influenced by new wealth, economic and social changes and the human desires of Skagen. By going through this dynamic era the facade of hotel has extended and become a full filled rectangle form. In a formal language the facade has lost its connection with the environment.

Shinae Kim’s project is opening the extension again but also keeping the elements. She took the extension parts of the facade and reconstructed them as individual elements on the glass walls of the exhibition space. Two dimensional facade elements are installed in a three dimensional space, giving time experience and movement between the elements.
