Mølleholmskolen is a converted and extended primary school, located in the municipality of Taastrup in Denmark. The project is based on the establishment of flexible learning environments, and the reconstruction and refurbishment of the educational learning centre, which opens onto the adjacent public areas.
The project creates various connections between the potentials of the old building and the possibilities of the new framework. Old and new become fused together by overlapping initiatives. The intention has been to create transparency across school activities, to bring a stronger identity to the individual departments, to improve access to nature and to create exciting new learning environments with space for the pupils to immerse themselves in various activities – e.g. in niches or lofts. The design of the large skylights draw daylight into building and allow the weather and the changing of seasons to influence these spaces. Through this redevelopment, Mølleholm School can now benefit from a unifying and functional framework that creates a common identity for the new school constellation.
