Users involvement, educating citizens and implementation days
The development of the project starts with including users into it. During the construction work, an art course was carried out with all the students, which resulted by incorporating decorations with the building.
A school can contribute more to its community than just educating
New Frederiksberg School has been developed with the focus on the school, as a local culture center and desire for use of school´s activities together with existing sport hall. Therefore, the building is predisposed with the strict strategy for optimal interaction with the public, multi-use and physical organization so all of it works well together.
From niches to auditoriums – variation in learning environment
The school has a wide variety of learning surroundings that encourages individual work, diverse learning styles, group work and joint events in the auditorium and studying center. On each department, learning and art are included as iconic elements.
Outdoor spaces with diverse use
The vision is to develop outdoor spaces that are exciting and inspiring and that support different uses throughout the day, week and year. The outdoor space is divided into several zones, each with their own character: ‘The Urban Farm’, ‘The Sciences’ and ‘The Gardens’. The outdoor space around Frederiksberg School is designed with many arrival halls, so that the school’s area is naturally connected to the existing trails and the surrounding neighborhoods.
A basic sustainability strategy
The project was developed based on a basic sustainability strategy that handles demanding environmental conditions and is purposefully programmed so that every area of property is used optimally – both during school hours and as an offer to the local community’s leisure users. Finally, the project was developed in close cooperation with partners.
