One of the most potentially influential projects within Nordhavn’s rehabilitation is the Copenhagen International School. The 25,000 m² building is home to over 900 students and staff from across the world.
Every construction and architectural decision made was done with the school’s ethos of long lasting impact and community in mind.
The school was designed from its inception to simultaneously represent how the buildings of the future can be kinder to the planet while also demonstrating new ways of educating the generations to come.
12,000 solar panels envelope the building’s exterior. The panels are coloured to blend aesthetically in with the building and to prove that form need not be sacrificed over function. The panels will provide over half of the school’s annual electricity consumption.
