“We are excited to have completed the circle of the Wadden Sea projects located in this unique UNESCO-protected landscape. By informing visitors about the important surrounding ecosystem and in creating an engaging architectural space, the aim is to make it an even more unique experience to visit the Wadden Sea,” said Mandrup.

Drawing upon a motif of harbor piers that rest in the water, the building is lifted away from the ground and extends upwards with the structure highlighting the horizon lines. The sloping plinth connects to the promenade level of the building and extends down to the waterfront. The open floor plates transition seamlessly between the exterior and the interior space. The building will feature several exhibition spaces, research facilities, offices, a seal center, a restaurant, a café, and a hotel. Visitors will be able to experience 360-degree views of the Wadden Sea, and the landscape in the distance.

The project is expected to be completed in 2020.
