Copenhagen based-studio we architecture has designed ‘light box’, an extension of an existing Danish-style high school in Frederiksberg Denmark.
The project, which won third place in a recent international competition looks to expand the gym facilities of the school without drastically reducing the popular pergola and courtyard spaces.
Immersed half-way into the ground, the new structure is designed to blend in as an extrusion of the existing outdoor area, a spacious elevated terrace with plentiful exposure to the sun.
Light enters the sunken space through this glazed void and windows that exist in negative space between the new structure and the existing built environment.
