Asymmetric Shelters On The Danish Coast By Lumo Arkitekter

Words

Danish studio Lumo Arkitekter created a number of asymmetric shelters located along the coast of Denmark, at the South Fyn Archipelago. Each one of the angular structures has a black-painted wooden surface that features round openings for a view of the surroundings. The architects developed the shelters – about 50 in total on 19 different locations – in an attempt to strengthen the local tourism as well as provide more opportunities for outdoor living in the country’s coastal areas.

In a statement about the project, the architects say: “The location of each shelter has been carefully selected and adapted to the surroundings, in order for it to be perceived as a precise and iconic landmark that does not distort or interfere with the site’s particular qualities and landscape.”
