Watersport Club House

Taking water sports and coast culture in Denmark to a new level

NORD has designed a new multifunctional building at Nyborg Marina, which would provide water sports in Denmark with new opportunities. A large water sports facility with a multi-purpose pool and partially heated seawater will transform the area at the harbor to a lively destination for water sports with a wide range of water activities like kayaking, water hiking, stand-up paddling, swimming pools and sunbathing.

The vision of Nyborg Municipality was to create new maritime facility for leisure activities and culture in an open mix that blend with the harbor environment. The initiative is supported by the Danish Lokale- og Anlægsfonden, which hereby introduces training, teaching and performative facilities that are not found elsewhere in Denmark.

The multifunctional building is a wooden structure placed on a large wooden deck. It is raised above the water surface to protect the building from flooding. Multipurpose plateaus are placed between the deck and the shoreline and can be used for training, audiences at competitions and shows, or simply for hanging out.

The building houses fitness, changing rooms, meeting rooms, workshop, kitchen, sauna and a central multifunctional room etc. In connection to the changing rooms, covered outdoor showers are available for all bathing guest. The close connections between outdoor and indoor activities and the life of the in-between space makes the simple wooden structure a robust house, where form, function and construction unify.
