Vibeeng School in Sealand, Denmark by Arkitema Architects

 
September 4th, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Arkitema Architects 

The primary goal of the vibeeng School is to integrate sustainability and learning in a low energy school (equivalent to LEED gold). The building is characterized by its red exterior and the abrupt foldings of the roof which create “house” like images in the facade and spatial variation in the interior. At the same time the varying shapes of the roof provide optimum angles for south facing solar panels and north facing windows. Both active measures that help create a low energy school. The school itself is designed from the inside out with an overriding concept that activates the whole plot and the landscape elements that surround the school.

Article source: Architecture Architecture 

In a row of workers’ cottages, there is one Dark Horse – a handsome creature. The stepped parapet, centred window, sidelined door and entrance awning are carried with the familiar, unassuming composure of its neighbours. Yet here the materials, stark in their composition, have a distinctly 21st century character, hinting at the contemporary home within.
