Maritime Gateway - - Brief News -

Apro­ject named Water Sports Cen­ter Halsskov, is lo­cated in a for­mer ferry port in Korsør, Den­mark.

Its most defin­ing fea­ture is a div­ing tower made from three re­cy­cled ship­ping con­tain­ers. The con­tain­ers are painted bright yel­low and stacked atop each other. Holes have been made in the con­tain­ers to aid ven­ti­la­tion and stairs within pro­vide ac­cess to div­ing points at heights of 4 m (13 ft) 8 m (26 ft) and 11 m (36 ft).

Sweco, the ar­chi­tect firm has in­stalled a build­ing with toi­lets, chang­ing room, stor­age and out­door show­ers. This is also made from ship­ping con­tain­ers that are painted yel­low but the ex­te­rior is lined with low-main­te­nance heat-treated sus­tain­ablysourced wood. Both the fa­cil­i­ties and div­ing struc­ture are il­lu­mi­nated with lowen­ergy LED light­ing.
