Addition with a sense of the spirit of the old school
A small project with large impact
In the 60+ year lifetime of the Bernadotte School in Hellerup, the private school north of Copenhagen has had a chronical lack of space. The school has acquired neighboring buildings and remodeled buildings over time – yet the demand for space has changed and increased as well over decades.
That is why the Bernadotte School approached Vandkunsten with the task of designing an addition to the main building. The project may be small in square meters but large in complexity.
The addition was finished in 2009 and the modest amount of square meters are fully taken advantage of.
We designed the addition as an independent and contemporary building – it fits in with the other eclectic collection of school buildings.
