fire shelter


Designed by Simon Hjermind Jensen, Fire Shelter is a temporary public space located in Sydhavnstippen, an inactive landfill that since 1973 has become overgrown with wild vegetation and animals. The shelter takes inspiration from architecture of ethnic and nomadic people. Inside, benches surround a fire pit, offering shelter from wind and a warm hearth. At night, light permeates the white polycarbonate roofing material and the shelter glows like a beacon. Beautiful.
