COLD BATH ON VEN

Möllebäcken, Ven

At Möllebacken, below the place where Tycho Brahe’s paper mill was situated, overlooking Öresund and Copenhagen, the possibility of building a bathhouse is investigated. The idea is to replace the worn wooden sauna at the path Kärleksstigen with two concrete structures, one out in the water and the other on the shore. The choice of concrete instead of the more traditional wooden bathhouse is partly due to the frequently tough weather and harsh autumn storms in Öresund, but should also be seen as an expression of the kind of contemporary architecture that is worthy of the place.
