EFFEKT has been awarded first prize in a competition to transform a disused train shed in Esbjerg, Denmark with their proposal to transform the roundhouse-style industrial structure into a home for skating and a host of other street culture activities. Entitled Streetmekka, the design restores the industrial shed's original circular geometry, incorporating indoor facilities for transition and bowl skating, basketball courts, a street dance area, workshop areas for DJ-schools and street art as well as meeting rooms, administration offices, a cafe, kitchen, changing rooms and a large social area and reception. In the heart of the circular compound, the design features an enclosed street sport plaza and large outdoor social space.

GPP Architects were recently awarded 1st prize for the Syd Energi (SE) Headquarter competition. The project is located on a remarkable site in the southwest part of Denmark – where the countryside meets the city, next to the biggest Danish land art monument – “The hill of light”. This new building for the employees at the energy company will, beside from being a great work environment, also be ground-breaking in terms of architecture and sustainability.
