House of Art inaugurated/The House of Arts has opened to the public in Roskilde, Denmark. In 2016 Svendborg Architects together with landscape architects BOGL and engineering firms Regnestuen and Spangenberg & Madsen, won an invitational competition for the new masterplan of Kildegaarden, and thereby The House of the Arts. The realization of the project was executed in close collaboration with Client Roskilde Municipality and the Lead-Contractor EH & Son. The project was supported by The Danish Foundation for Sports and Culture Facilities and the building was inaugurated 21. September 2018. House of Art/The House of the Arts is located in the middle of the square of Kildegaarden. The exterior is coated with specular, red-nuanced aluminium sheets. These sheets reflect and somewhat distorts the surrounding brickwork. The floor plan is a perfect square, and the roof slants from the front to almost seven meters at the back— a geometry that clearly sets it apart from its surroundings, though elevates towards its neighbors.
