New School in Helsingør
Architect: Effekt
Status: Competition (2012)
Clasification: 1 prize
Visualizer: Studio
Scale: 20.000 ㎡ Large
Types: Education, School

The school is envisioned not as a modern office building with classrooms, but as a whole urban district – a learning city for kids – that supports more movement – great variety – and a place being integral part of the of the city. The city becomes part of the school and the school becomes part of the city.

The entire site is transformed into one coherent floor connecting the entire complex on a playful and differentiated surface. Smaller parks, plazas and gardens frame local environments. The project involves new buildings as well as tranformation of historical buildings into one united and modern School.

The new Sports Complex connects a big green area with the rest of the school. The Sports Complex is divided into many houses that can be uses separately and together. The different houses are connected by a central space under the landscape stair.
