Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter wins the Träpriset prize

At a prestigious ceremony held in Stockholm on March 9 2016, Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter was awarded the Träpriset, the famous Swedish prize for timber architecture.
The award-winning project is the Raa Day Care Center, a timber building in Råå on the Swedish side of the strait of Øresund.
The prize is awarded every four years to timber constructions meeting high quality standards, contemporary buildings that contribute to the evolution of their surroundings. The judges unanimously chose Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter’s project out of 139 candidates, particularly praising its ability to fit into and interpret its surroundings, as well as its use of materials and attention to detail.

In an article published in Floornature, Mara Corradi notes that the building "  creatively reproduces part of the history of Råå, an old fishing village, interpreted through a more immediate architectural vocabulary distinguished by great dynamism". Thus culture is transformed into contemporary architecture, creating an opportunity for redevelopment of the bay.
