C.F. Møller Architects have won in an invited competition to design a new building for the Herningsholm Vocational School in Herning, Denmark. The new building consists of three angular building volumes, brought together under a single sloping roof, which responds to its context among other buildings on the school's campus by going from three stories on the Southern end to two in the North.

The architects describe the building as being "designed inside-out... as well as outside-in", with a dual focus on providing optimal learning spaces inside but also on providing learning spaces in the three outside areas defined by the building's volume.

Inside, the learning spaces are arranged around a central flexible 'common space', with each room having direct access onto the this unifying element. The form of the common space allows it to hold a variety of functions, from a cafe in the most open part, to workshops in double height areas, to quiet study corners.

The facade of the building incorporates built in seating and study niches, another way of creating a wide variety of learning environments for students.
