Vertical Campus in Larvik, Norway by CEBRA

Vertical Campus is a substantial extension to the local school. In the northern hemisphere, it makes sense to build compact buildings because they are economic and reduce heat loss, and also because this ensures short internal distances and synergies between different functions. In addition to being a compact school, the Vertikal Campus has a small footprint. First of all, this makes it possible to reuse the old foundations, which is important due to highly complicated geotechnical circumstances. Secondly, it leaves more outdoor park area for the children and creates distance to neighboring houses.

Interior view

Due to the combination of a compact body and a small footprint, the central common atrium of the school is like a vertical campus, where the building seems as if it has been flipped on its side. This vertical space is similar to a traditional theater space with a tiny stage-like floor and a number of cantilevering balconies from which the pupils of the school can overlook a variety of subject rooms and facilities. The vertical campus is the heart of the school and even has a similar shape.
