Kaap Skil, by Mecanoo, wins Daylight Award 2012
June 3, 2012

Kaap Skil Mecanoo TexelMecanoo’s Kaap Skil, maritime and beachcombers’ museum, on the Dutch island of Texel has been awarded the Daylight Award 2012. The prestigious prize, awarded by the Living Daylights Foundation, honours projects that reach an optimum result in combining daylight, artificial light and design. One can almost feel the weather because of the transparency of the building, according to the jury. "Sun, clouds, thunder and rain: outdoors comes inside as perception and emotion and this is a core quality for a building with the Wadden Sea at your doorstep."
Kaap Skil plays with daylight and the contrast between daylight and artificial light, lightness and darkness in various ways. The glass facade in front of the wooden boards affords an inviting view of the famous North Holland skies to visitors of the museum café. Inside the building, these boards cast a linear pattern of daylight and shadow creating an atmosphere infused with light and shelter.
