Like a concertina in cross-laminated timber: Community centre by Nord Architects
In Brønshøj, Denmark, Nord Architects has realised a parish centre in an open form language. The multifunctional building built out of cross-laminated timber provides scouts and parishioners plenty of space for their communal activities. At the same time it brings about a new site situation that links a previously isolated church with city life.
