Located on the Vejle Fjord, Havneøen is a Gaudi styled building.
Fjordenhus (Fjord House) is Studio Olafur Eliasson’s first building and houses Kirk Kapital’s company HQ. The building is as much a work of art as the crafted pieces it contains.
The organic architecture is formed from a series of masonry curves with geometric shapes, reminiscent of some of Gaudi’s original works. Parabolic arches puncture the endless curves and create buttress-like structure that disappear below the water of the Fjord.
The interior features bespoke crafted furniture and specialist lighting. Many of the installations being created by Studio Olafur Eliasson.
