The Tiunda School is for children from preschool to the 9th grade, and its structure is simple and robust. The brick facades are a link back to the site’s history – the old brickworks. The design of the interior reflects the structure’s simplicity and robustness and gives space for playfulness and inspiration.
A shared connecting space on the ground floor combines a bistro, square, main staircase and several shared learning environments. This gives ample space to develop a sense of community and pride in the school. C.F. Møller, in collaboration with Anna Törnqvist, a school building expert, has developed a school that offers flexible, future-proof learning environments. The spatial design is matched to the needs of a traditional organisation, yet it also opens up new opportunities, including more varied working methods and seating plans.
The new building also includes preparation kitchens, an after-school club, and a new sports hall. The school and its schoolyard are attractive and inviting, playful, stimulate social contact and inspire safety and security.
As a dialogue-based turnkey contract and collaboration, the project ensures quality and results, creating openness and awareness. The project includes the demolition of the existing school and building the New Tiunda School.
