Keith Williams' run of success continues in Denmark

  • Comment
Keith Williams Architects continues to prosper in 2007 after the practice was yet again shortlisted, this time to design a new museum in Denmark.

The firm is the only UK architect to be selected to draw up designs for a new 6,000m2 maritime museum in Helsingør, east Denmark.

Williams will be battling it out against renowned Danish architects CF Møllers Tegnestue, Schmidt Hammer & Lassen, BIG and Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter.

If successful, it will be the practice's third commission since the end of February, and should things go its way with a project for a cultural centre in Norway, it will have four projects in progress, with two new theatres and two museums on the cards ( Keith Williams Architects shortlisted for Norway cultural centre comp ).

The current museum competition is on a site close to the UNESCO-protected Kronborg Castle (pictured), which is classed as one of the most important renaissance castles in Northern Europe.

The project is part of 'Kronborg Culture Harbour', an extensive regeneration and revitalisation of the urban harbour areas in the port of the city.
