Maglegaard school
Built: 1909
Rebuilt: 1999-2001
Size: 3-form; 712 pupils, age 6-15
Budget: 30 Mio. DKK.




The project encompassed refurbishing of school and after-school centre, and a new music
building and sports centre. The physical environment was aimed to support the self-esteem
of the individual child. The children are able to use their strong suits in a diverse learning
environment. The school has established the "little school" in the big. Each class group has
a home base, which jointly with two other home bases forms a shared area. After the
refurbishing all staff went through an in-service training on self-esteem, children's diversity,
change, development and learning based on reflection.

school and a diversity of smaller and larger rooms for group and individuals to work. The

Size: 950 students, age 15-18
Budget: 188 Mio. DKK
Ørestad Gymnasium is the first in Denmark with an architectural design that corresponds
to the new visions on content, subject matter, organization, and learning systems that are
part of the new Danish reforms for high schools that came into effect on August 1, 2005.
Flexibility and openness are key words for the new building, which has open rooms,
subject zones, niches for creativity and concentration, and free access everywhere to the
virtual space.

Kingoskolen
Built: 2001
Rebuilt: 2006
Size: 325 pupils (age 13-15)
Budget: 60 Mio. DKK (Rebuilding: 2.4 Mio. DKK)



The architectural idea was to create a school with a functional clarity. In other words, it
should be easy to read off the different parts of the school, because this provides
recognisability and a sense of security, and at the same time invites to experiences and
exploration.

Other areas of focus have been indoor climate and energy consumption.
