Black Sun in Rømø Habour

The settlement “Sort Sol” takes its scenic, unique surroundings as its starting point.
In order to protect the area against surges the settlement is built on pills. That way, the landscape drifts undisturbed beneath the houses. The design of “Black Sun” is based on the strong and sometimes violent nature it is located in the middle of.

The ground floor is primary used for arrival and parking. The private life of the residents unfolds on the upper floors and on the roof top. Here they can be sheltered from the harsh winds and create their own private oasis. Thus, each unit operates as a single dwelling.

Throughout the settlement, the homes are placed so that each property achieves the best possible orientation towards the sun and the view. With their distinctive design the houses give the area a strong identity with respect for the characteristic tidal landscape. The residents feel like they are living amidst nature with views of the sea, the flat land and the sky.

Black Sun

The settlement appears with an expression and a simplicity that characterize tidal culture. The materials combine grey concrete and black-painted, wooden paneling. The atmosphere on the main street can be compared to the fishing village, with its idyllic streets where the locals and the tourists meet.

In the main street shopping and café visits are combined with nature. To the south the settlement forms a boundary to a new public promenade. Here the North Sea reveals itself and you sense the smell of salt and the wind in your hair.
