BELLAHØJ SCHOOL

The project is a total renovation of Bellahøj School, both buildings and outdoor spaces. Kragh & Berglund has been responsible for the renovation of the schoolyard and the landscape, and KANT Arkitekter and EFFEKT Arkitekter are the building architects.

The landscape project binds the school together, and creates a connection between new and existing. This is done in the form of a “movement delta”, which, like an organic blue track, brings together the school's outdoor space into one large activity and learning landscape. Here you will find both running tracks, ball fields, the possibility of accommodation and areas for exhibitions for visual art.

Bellahøj School has a special focus on movement, sports and health, and it is the children themselves who have helped shape their new schoolyard. We have worked closely with students from the University of Southern Denmark, who have held workshops with the children, so that their wishes and ideas became the cornerstone of the project.
