Blueberry Inn

New youth centre – a meeting place for the local children and youth

The Blueberry Inn is a new building constructed as an addition to the existing building in order to house a different programme. The new facility must meet many demands and requirements.


The building is set within urban surroundings that divide the individual spaces in front of and behind the building into different zones according to use. The plan is to grant access to the garden at the back of the property only to children who have ‘earned’ access to the building. The garden should therefore only be accessible via the building. A forecourt will also be created as a space for people to linger upon arrival. The position of the building defines both of these areas clearly, creating a ‘town square’ in front and a ‘back garden’ without the need for additional fences or barriers. The two exterior areas are well-proportioned in terms of length and width, and each is designed differently to have unique spatial characteristics.
