    From the architect. Vandkunsten has completed an extension to the small, alternative Bernadotte School north of Copenhagen. The school is housed in a couple of old villas that have been added to over the years, creating a labyrinthine teaching environment full of character but lacking in facilities and basic outdoor spaces.

    Vandkunsten’s new building adds a library, a gym with stage facilities and extends existing classrooms and workshops while new roof terraces leave a larger and more articulated playarea for the kids. All new spaces tie into existing access and circulation.

    Construction is lightweight in wood and steel and insulation values are high. While the project accepts the labyrinthine as a fundamental quality of the place, a degree of visual coherence has been achieved with vandkunsten’s trademark black cladding – and with the stainless wires in place for the three kinds of creepers that have been planted along the new house.
