This master’s thesis presents the design proposal for a centre for Danish Brewing culture - Bryggekulturens Hus – situated in the city of Thisted, Northern Jutland. This includes a transformation of a historical malt building and an overall aim to make the Danish brewing industry more transparent to the public, ultimately promote a more taste-oriented perception on beer. Here focusses on sustainable-tectonic relations to transformation and perception of local history and identity ultimately set the framework for designing. Furthermore, with an overall integrated and interdisciplinary approach to dealing with a complex design process, architectural notion of aesthetics and space were informed by technical and urban aspects of indoor climate and landscaping to heighten the quality of the design proposal.

Through a series of experiences addressing senses of seeing and tasting as well as the notion of actively trying and learning, Bryggekulturens Hus provide conditions for a wide user group, ultimately creating possibilities for social interactions and an activation of both the region and the otherwise introverted part of the city.
