Through the use of brick walls and barrel arched roofs the Tham & Videgård’s project establishes a strong connection to the character and spatial qualities of the existing buildings, while it will also constitute a new and independent contemporary addition. It is organised around a covered entrance courtyard with direct access to the separate teaching studios. Taking into account the ordinary wear and tear of daily school life, the choice of durable materials and finishes, as well as the treatment of daylight are tailored according to the requirements of the teaching activities of the school.

The new building replaces two existing barracks from the 60’s, using the same footprint, so that the spatial asset of its close relation to the neighbouring houses can be preserved and developed. The almost square plan with brick walls that are pened up to provide views and connections within the new premises as well as outwards to its surroundings, is both simple and varied. Arched roofs made of glulam wooden beams, create spacious interiors filled with light and establish a direct relationship between the construction principle and architectural space.
