Maritime Youth House, PLOT = BIG + JDS, Copenhagen, 2004

“Two very different users had to share the facilities: a sailing club and a youth centre with conflicting requirements: the youth centre wanted outdoor space for the kids to play; the sailing club required most of the site to moor their boats. The building is the result of these two contradictory demands: The deck is elevated high enough to allow for boat storage underneath while providing an undulating landscape for the kids to run and play above.”

Thanks to reader DK! for spotting this over at archdaily, which has more plans and pictures.
