Floor Plan

Traffic House consists of a modernisation of an existing class room structure, a new workshop and go-kart garage building which are joined by a large roof structure creating a new portal to the popular Traffic Playground at the Central Park in Copenhagen. This is where school classes go to learn about traffic rules and test their skills on site.

A particular emphasis is put on creating an optimal environment for kindergartens and schools, visiting the Traffic Playground to play and to learn about traffic rules. MLRP has designed a building that invites children to play at the same time as providing a better visual contact between building and playground.

The existing building is updated to current building requirements for daylight and acoustics, as well as meeting the Danish 2015 energy requirements. The entire building process is proving a strong focus on accessibility in the Traffic House.

Traffic House / MLRP - Facade

The expression of the building is reflecting the requirement that the building must be closed completely at night and be open and inviting during the day. The transformation from a closed, anonymous building into an accessible and friendly building during the day can be achieved using folding doors in front of all facades. The materials used are black wood, galvanized steel plates, orange lacquered windows and panels and a lush green roof.
