International studio Henning Larsen has unveiled detailed designs for an 8,000m2 public harbour and headquarters for shipping company Smyril Line in Tórshavn, the capital of the Faroe Islands. Traditional Faroese wooden fishing boats and the hand-built coastal paths inspired the wooden structure and concrete base of the building.
The terminal is located close to the Faroese parliament and was once the primary gateway between the Faroe Islands and the rest of the world. A terrace ramp offers the public impressive views, and the office features an expansive private internal garden. Visualisation credit ELEMENT. Henning Larsen
