Eye-catching low-energy school completed in Haslev by Arkitema Architects

The Vibeeng School designed by Arkitema Architects is a primary school that integrates sustainability and pedagogy in a low-energy class 1 school, and will be officially opened this week by the Danish Minister of Education Christine Antorini.

The school is characterised by its playful red facade, external educational zones and a roof that creates ideal opportunities for both the installation of solar panels and north-facing skylights. These elements contribute to the school’s low energy status.

The school has an inviting, playful and lively expression which, combined with a close contact to nature and light, stimulates the joy of learning in a challenging environment for both children and adults alike. The ’heart’ room is a centrally located, dynamically shaped and volumous space with a large multipurpose stair at it’s base.

Additional stairs and platforms create and provide access to the learning centre, views towards the large hall, and connections to both the teachers’ area and the core areas.
