Vandkunsten is extending the small, alternative bernadotte school in Hellerup, north of Copenhagen.
the new L-shaped wing embraces the exsisting villa and offers new classrooms, a hall and a roof terrace.
Slice and dice is a design logic suited to piecemeal, little by little, development. Recognizing that these sites will never be completed as a single, connected object, we developed a system for building fragmented pieces. The design articulates the fragmentation of the developement process and seeks to maximize its aesthetic potential. The idea is take a mass, cut it and pull apart at the cut allowing open space to flow through the site and the buildings that make it up.
