From the architect. Søgaard School is one of the municipality of Gentoftes school expansion projects, which CEBRA developed in cooperation with the users of the institution. Søgaard School is a special school for socially challenged children with general learning disabilities. The project is based on the school's value program and the needs expressed during workshops with staff and parents. It has been a goal to collect school scattered buildings in a coherent structure that enhances the natural opportunities for collaboration across school departments.

The architectural intention of the project is to provide elements that link to the neighborhood - its scale and characteristics. The new building is therefore divided into sections in the plan as a duplication of the existing building's footprint. These are shifted in relation to each other and vary in size. Each section has its own pitched roof - a recognizable form in the surrounding residential neighborhood, and by letting the pitched roofs have the same direction as the existing building, reveals a picture of several joined villas.

I think my favorite must be the Søgaard School. interesting play of the different spaces, breaking the old boring "one volume" school into a set of functional units that relate to the Genius Locci of the site at a human scale. Very nice :)

A great school, for once one that is familiar to children.
