The Danish architect Dorte Mandrup designed the building of a modern heritage protection center that will be erected above the bunker of the Second World War.

The building will have four floors, including conference rooms, office and storage rooms, as well as a glass exterior wall, seemingly wrapping the building. Space behind it will be illuminated at night and plan to use for events and exhibitions. At night, the building will serve as a kind of beacon, and in the daytime reflect the surface of the water.

This project became the winner in the competition for the new headquarters of an international organization dedicated to the protection of the Wight Sea area.

In 1853, the base of the Prussian fleet was deployed in this region, later the city of Wilhelmshaven was founded with it. He survived heavy bombardments during World War II, but the bunker resisted.
