Skamlingsbanken is a lateral moraine that was formed during the last ice age (22,000-25,000 years ago). Belonging to the Danish municipality of Kolding, this visitor center is embedded in the ground, forming another hill in the rolling landscape. Meant to accommodate a variety of events, the underground construction features an exhibition space that tells the story of Skamlingsbanken, an area protected by its flora and fauna. The entrance presents curved cuts from which paths stretch toward the landscape. The project was developed in close collaboration with the Danish Society for Nature Conservation and the biologist Mette Keseler List, who came up with a grass mixture based on local herb species to spread on and around the building.
