The Malt Factory

This project tries to create a long-lasting and timeless transformation of the former Malt Factory, which also works at second glance, and which incorporates in the environment in a way that highlights the existing qualities.

This project is about creating life in the Malt Factory, creating life in the big red building at the top of the town of Ebeltoft DK. It is in the Malt Factory that everyone is welcome, it is in the Malt Factory that there is light and activity around the clock, it is in the Malt Factory that all users have their daily walk - and it is the Malt Factory that becomes an iconic landmark you know about. It sizzles and boils in the fine rooms, among the characteristic wooden constructions, in the cool interior of the clubs; effervescent life outside and inside - the large building has been revived.
The Malt Factory must be transformed, without losing its architectural uniqueness, character, and atmosphere. To succeed in this, we are convinced that it requires a humble stance on this complex task. The proposal is therefore developed based on three concepts, it is about reinforcing, connecting, and anchoring. Reinforce the character of the buildings and of urban spaces. Connect the city and the sea, indoor and outdoor spaces. Anchor the already existing activities and initiatives in the Malt Factory.
The Malt Factory's buildings and landscape are a valuable and rich inventory of spaces, constructions, stories, landscapes, and potentials. Based on the unique qualities the place possesses today, the project seeks to strengthen the Malt Factory's special character so that urban spaces and buildings are connected to the market town environment in Adelgade to the east and west of Ebeltoft Vig.
