The school in the city
A new gathering point
The development of Campus Odsherred is a collective endeavor, not only for the school and its educational directions but also for associations, businesses, and the municipal political dimension. Campus Odsherred is a genuine urban development project with education, community life, city life, and business as common drivers sharing common goals: the development of Asnæs as a city and an educational center.
The new Campus Odsherred is an ambitious and visionary project involving the establishment of new and modern educational facilities in Asnæs. It aims to consolidate youth education in Odsherred on the current premises of Odsherreds Gymnasium. By bringing all youth education to one location, the ambition is for Campus Odsherred to create attractive academic and study environments, drawing in the young population of Odsherred for both vocational training and high school education.
The strategy involves a community that interacts with and integrates into the existing city and the current community culture. The new school aims to share its activities with the public on all levels, allowing communities to mutually enrich each other’s activities both inside and outside the school.
Madstrædet (the food alley)
The expansive area around the main entrance tells a unique story. The school requires a prominent entrance that invites people in. The gastronomy program needs a kitchen garden. The cafeteria requires an expansion. The space around the main entrance becomes the place that blends the outdoors and indoors, new and old, different study paths. When the focus is on cultivation, an essential part of the region's distinctiveness is exposed.<br /> <br /> The main entrance is designed as an orangery or an actual greenhouse, featuring a "welcome long table" in the center. This table can be used as a dining area, study space, meeting place, green workspace, with raised beds for cultivating a kitchen garden along the windows.
Existing frameworks, a new focal point for the school.
The task quickly becomes building upon the things that work well, and fortunately, there are many. The cafeteria space with direct access to the courtyard, and the cafeteria as part of the existing north-south corridor through the school, is a strong organizational concept. By connecting to this and emphasizing it further, we create an easily understandable and highly functional structure in the school around which we build the functions.
