ACT wins School Project in cph

Active City Transformation have in collaboration with AART and Tækker Consulting Engineers, won the project competition for the extension and rebuilding of Skolen ved Søerne at Frederiksberg in Copenhagen.

In the jury report, Frederiksberg Municipality highlights how the winning proposal creates aesthetic, functional and organizational qualities that interact with the beautiful area by the lakes and create a convincing connection between the new and existing school building.

In order to create cohesion, the outdoor areas are interlinked by a dynamic path that rises from the existing schoolyard to the new elevated schoolyard and further up along the thematic terraces to the school’s top floor. In a dynamic flow that starts way down in the existing schoolyard and ends at the top floor, the outdoor area twines round the new extension. In this way, the proposal creates a distinctive and dynamic learning environment that provides space for various activities and merges the boundary between indoor and outdoor spaces.
