Sølvgades School in Copenhagen by C.F. Møller
August 6, 2012

C.F. Møller Sølvgades School CopenhagenDenmark’s oldest school, the listed Sølvgades School built in 1847, close to King Christian IV’s famous historic naval barracks, Nyboder, in Copenhagen, has for many years been lacking space and modern facilities. C.F. Møller has carefully renovated the school and done an extension which in its form and colours is true to the surroundings, but also adds a modernistic twist to the school.
The new six-storey building with its striking glass façade gives Sølvgade School a lively, modernistic twist, but with its slanted shapes and colour scheme relating to Nyboder's pastel shades, it also corresponds with the historic surroundings. 

Inside, the floorplan layout twists and angles, walls are sloping, and the coloristic colour scheme continues, linking inside and outside and creating an inspiring and dynamic learning environment.
The unusual double layering of the façade creates a highly insulated building, minimizes traffic noise, and functions as vent stack for natural ventilation. The hybrid ventilation concept combines natural and mechanical ventilation to minimize the use of energy and create the optimal indoor climate crucial to a learning environment. All in all, the energy consumption does not exceed 68 kWh/m2/year.
