The high school is built in 1955 in red and yellow brick and designed by architect Thomas Havning. The buildings composition provides a living frame. The varying patterns of the walls provide a tactile quality, which softens the spaces and provide them with personality.

 

The Team Denmark students need a hall where they can practice sports. The hall will also be used for the assembly of all the students.

 

The new sports hall is located in direct connection with the two original halls, in that way the possibility of one large continuous floor space for a handball court emerges. The existing and the new are connected with one large new roof. The new roof incorporates sky light, artificial light, good acoustic properties and natural ventilation.

 

The transition between the hall and the courtyard opens up directly between inside and outside. The architectural concept builds on the qualities the school already has, by strengthening the framework for the life in the new high school.
