Bordings Independent School in Copenhagen / Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Architects

dorte-mandrup_1The existing buildings of Bordings Independent School are beautifully situated by the lakes in Copenhagen. The main building is set back from the road, and the façade towards the lakes is primarily shaped by the new building, the gym and the gates toward the two courts of the school.

The school is situated between two urban structures, the traditional block-structure with 4-5 storey buildings and the close and intimate structure of the row houses “Kartoffelrækkerne”. The façade facing the lakes is characterized by the alternation between the block structure and the row house structure, the expression is diverse and green.
