SCHOOLS WE LIKE – NORDBY SCHOOL

Holscher Nordberg Nordby School 01 The Nordby School by Holscher Nordberg is set in a small, modern residential community in rural Denmark and is distinguished by a plan where small classrooms are placed around a common area designed to support project-based learning. Holscher Nordberg Nordby School 07Our JUST ONE THING this week is centralized common areas. The Commons is entered directly from the street, and well lit by skylights along the length of the space. Zones are created with level changes and overhanging work areas to create a very habitable central public space. Holscher Nordberg Nordby School 04 Café tables are placed around the commons to give a sense of informal eating areas. Holscher Nordberg Nordby School 06 At the far end of the commons, the space opens to the exterior where an outdoor student plaza steps down to a large pond / wetland area.Holscher Nordberg Nordby School 15 Holscher Nordberg
