Danish school project receives international recognition

10 November 2023

One of the first new-generation timber schools in Denmark receives a prestigious mention.

We are glad to share that our design for 'Erlev School' receives an 'honorable mention' in the category 'Education' at THE PLAN AWARD 2023.

At Erlev School, situated in the Danish city of Haderslev, our team pushed beyond the boundaries of the initial brief, elevating the standards of innovative learning pedagogy and sustainability.

Compressing 5.800m2, Erlev School is designed as a series of simple and open geometries. The school consists of small universes with year clusters, each characterized by age-appropriate layout and visual appearance.

This prestigious mention serves as a testament to our collective dedication and team efforts with Haderslev Kommune, OJ Rådgivende Ingeniører, Kuben Management - Bygherrerådgiver og udviklingspartner, Autens, and Pluskontoret Arkitekter to create a learning environment that caters to and surpasses the needs and aspirations of both children and teachers.
