The project is an extension of modern music facilities to Aurehøj Gymnasium. The street along the high school’s main building is characterized by the longitude of the main building and by an opening to the court yard. The new building is placed at the end gable of the existing building, connected by a bridge and twisted from the street to underline the movement along the main building and into the school yard.

To ensure a well-proportioned and down scaled new building in relation to the existing Gymnasium, the program of the extension is split into two volumes, one of which is under ground. The extension has three main architectural elements: The compact cube containing teaching facilities and studios, the dug down rectangular court yard that offers a wind-protected area towards south and the elevated terrace covering 120 m2 rehearsal space.

The interior spaces are geometrically designed in collaboration with Gade & Mortensen Acoustics in order to avoid flutter between parallel surfaces. For the regulation of acoustics in the rehearsal hall sliding panels are complemented by heavy curtains.
