Lundgaard & Tranberg, Kannikegård parish building in Ribe

Founded early in the 8th century, Ribe is one of Denmark’s oldest towns. In the medieval quarter stands the Kannikegård building with its steeply pitched roof, a work of the Danish firm Lundgaard & Tranberg. It contains auxiliary spaces for the nearby cathedral, completed in 1250, such as offices, meeting rooms, rehearsal halls, and venues for events. The three-story volume is raised on concrete pillars in order to preserve and display the archaeological remains that turned up on the construction site, objects which belonged to a monastery erected in the year 1100. Interrupted by windows of different sizes and irregular shapes, reddish brown tiles overlap as they cover the facades that rise over a glass base paced by oakwood boards.
