The new Kindergarten and nursery is placed by the sea, on the tip of Islands Brygge in Copenhagen and the architecture is designed in accordance with the surrounding existing buildings, an area characterised by small boathouses and small dwellings. While still in the capital of Denmark, the children will have a daily life filled with fresh sea air and the sound of seagulls. 

Nokken houses 124 children (3 nursery groups and 4 pre-school groups), has a good indoor climate and sustainable materials.

A jewelled box

Inside the kindergarten and nursery a multitude of colours, intricate patterns and different surfaces great the children. Decorated with colours, patterned wallpaper and tiles. This gives the impression of a large jewellery box, and creates a colourful interior as well as a fun playhouse for the children. While the floor plan is intricate and labyrinthic, the various colours make it easy to navigate around the building.
