danish practices dorte mandrup arkitekter and LETH & GORI architects in collaboration with marianne levinsen landscape, henrik larsen and jørgen nielsen engineers have proposed the winning design for the ‘marthagården day care center’ in frederiksberg, copenhagen. positioned amidst two existing villas and a garden, this small scale masterplan creates a protected environment for children to play, learn and relax. indoor and outdoor spaces contain diverse atmospheres which maintain the original qualities of the site and support the physical and educational development of the children.

 

rich in character and identity, areas including an accessible sunken courtyard and rooftop playground placed at different elevations are woven into a singular experience. a series of underground passages preserve the established identity of the complex while providing connections between the historic structures. integrating architecture, design, nature and technology, the design produces a safe and inclusive communal place for visitors.

  • Interesting contrast between this one and the one earlier in the week: Paul le Quernec + Michel Grasso’s Nursery in Sarreguemines. They are both true to their individual design characteristics. I like the use of the roof in the modern design; would like to see curved paths from the roof, to enable the disabled and cyclists to be able to negotiate the space d:-)
