Danish architectural firm CF Moller has won a competition to design the Herningsholm Vocational School in Denmark. Situated among a cluster of existing educational buildings, the 50,000-square-foot school is designed to create optimal learning and study environments both indoors and out.
The building’s angular layout brings together three volumes under a sloping roof, creating three new urban spaces that provide opportunities for outdoor work and teaching. With the idea that behavior and thinking are shaped by the physical environment, the design team proposes classrooms with direct access to common study spaces. These varied spaces include double-height rooms facing the garden, a student café, and dedicated study corners.
The project is expected to be completed in summer 2016.
