About the project
Evolving the isolated nature of traditional schools, Vrå Children and Culture Centre is just as much a community space for the entire town as it is for the students. Architecturally, by blending the built environment with the surrounding landscape, it challenges the relationship between constructed and natural.
The spaces within the school are shaped by both conventional building materials, and parts of the natural surroundings, creating a cohesive relationship between the building and site. Trunks of the surrounding trees become slender columns inside the lobby, the forest floor becomes interior courtyards, and the canopy becomes the wooden roof structure that encloses the central gathering space.
