Text description provided by the architects. Slotfelt Barn emerges in the landscape with its shape of inverted boats and marks an important part of the Danish cultural history. The historic barn has undergone a transformation from a dilapidated barn to a public exhibition space.

It is located in the flat marshlands on the outskirts of Møgeltønder in the southwest of Jutland in Denmark. Praksis Arkitekter was assigned to reconstruct the barn from the 1870s to a small cultural centre.

The distinctive curved roof rafters were reconstructed by bolting a number of thin layers of timber together to form a single laminated structure.

The original hard mud flooring has been replaced by a terrazzo floor made by ballast of large fieldstone from the local area. The terrazzo is cast in a single piece and covers the entire floor of 300sqm and is special developed for Slotfelt Barn by Praksis.

Praksis designed a flexible exhibition space, which tells the viewers the story of the Golden Horn, Møgeltønder, Schakenborg Castle and Slotfelt Barn. To make this less noisy in the clean surroundings, three movable boxes were made of black fiberglass to contain a small cinema, toilets and a digital projector showing the national treasure the Golden Horns found in the nearby area.

Slotfelt Barn is a reinvention of the old, traditional architecture and adds a platform for further information about the Danish culture history.
