set in rural denmark, kvorning design's triangular shelters redefine outdoor learning

taking learning to new heights with the kvorning shelters

 

Danish practice Kvorning Design recently took on the challenge of designing, producing, and constructing an entire outdoor learning space on the campus of a local teaching initiative, LIFE foundation, in Kongens Lyngby, Denmark. Huddled around a campfire site, the wood-clad Kvorning Shelters emerge as four large, eight-person, triangular volumes where different activities can be held. Together, these hyper-modern structures redefine the aesthetics of traditional classes and how educational experiences are carried out.

 

‘Corona taught us to use the outdoors regardless of the weather, time, or season. […] Kvorning Shelters from the Kvorning Outdoor Solutions series help ensure enjoyable outdoor experiences for everyone, no matter what,’ writes the practice.

inviting wonder + exploration through a dynamic composition

 

Once the project was complete, Kvorning Design took its drone out for a spin, capturing the shelters’ minimalist yet dynamic geometric shapes. The exterior facets reveal a dark roofing felt checkered with thin wooden panels. At the same time, the interiors, clad entirely in warm-toned wood, are kept clear of any furniture to maximize flexible use. As a result, from certain angles, the triangular classes boast a cavernous quality, inviting wonder and exploration.

 

‘Now everyone can enjoy designer shelters and an untouched piece of Danish countryside just a short drive north of Copenhagen,’ note the architectsThe Kvorning Shelters sit next to the new LIFE building, housing indoor learning facilities, professional laboratories, and more.
