Designskolen Kolding will be expanded and opened up to the light, so there is room for both workshops for artistic expression and a changing garden outdoors. The extension will take place in two stages. The first consists of an extension, and the second involves an extension of the existing building.

Design school with workshops and garden
The workshops, the main spaces of the design school, occupy the double-height rooms, with optimal studio/north light. The square section allows light to penetrate deep into the building. A recessed balcony for study spaces creates the contact between study space and workshop for the various relevant disciplines in a changing light space. The area between Designskolen Kolding and the river is set aside for gardens. The modular system of the building is brought out into the garden by planting trees in rows with changing rhythms. The grove will be experienced in an orderly way school, but changeable when experienced from the path to the river. The extension in stage 2 is located in the extension of the west gable of the building.
