Schools / Institutions

We always put people first in our concepts – but when we talk about schools and institutions, this premise is taken to a deeper level. In these cases, we build our analysis around a more intuitive and emphatic thinking, and in meeting the users needs with a great deal of attentiveness. The ambition is to create surroundings, that address the senses and emotions as well, and stimulate joy and energy.

// WE SAY THAT HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS, AND SCHOOLS AND INSTITUTIONS SHOULD HAVE A HEART AS WELL //

Schools and institutions are employee work places as well, and days are often very busy and very little space is allotted to employee functions. Their needs should be adressed with equal weight and understanding, to make a project really successful. We like to use humour in many contexts, and a nice example is the nursing home, Søndervang, where a use of nostalgic references with a twist, did a bit of disruption in the traditional place-for-the-elderly style. At a sports school for handicapped children, we used the sports references as the central theme, and created a very energetic place, designed to make you want to play and move.

Do you see a need for change in your school or institution?

EXAMPLES

Søndervang nursing home
The nursing home is located in a rather worn down five story building in Copenhagen. This building is undergoing a planned renovation in five years time, but both staff and residents needed a bit of freshening up of their surroundings. In collaboration with Essensen, we have done a makeover with a lot of references to nostalgia, but with a modern twist.

Sports school for disabled youths
The sports school offers 700 m2 of both in- and outdoors sports facilities. In close cooperation with school staff and teachers, we developed an interior concept that facilitate the many daily activities for the disabled students. The school vision is to create community through sports, and various sports references are the uniting theme in the concept.
