Completed: Building Programme and Programme for Skagen Lighthouse, The Grey Lighthouse

We have now completed the building programme and programme draft for Skagen Lighthouse on behalf of Realdania Byg.

The programme has been developed through a close collaboration with the owner, Realdania, and The Danish Nature Agency, Frederikshavns Council, Skagen’s Tourist Association and Danish Ornithological Association as leaseholder and stakeholder respectively. There was furthermore held a workshop on the subject matter.

Based on the specified heritage assets of the lighthouse, the programme defines the practical framework for the establishment of a new nature centre focusing on birds and bird migration in the listed lighthouse on a spectacular location such as Skagen.
