Munkegård School
The 5500 m2 of existing buildings is designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1950'ies. The building was protected in 1995 and appointed to be one of Arne Jacobsen's masterpieces. Task challenge was to accommodate the school's desire to implement interdisciplinary teaching and the ability to differentiate instruction. Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter was in February 2005 asked to give our offer for the task; Renovation of Arne Jacobsen's Munkegårds School. The assignment covers the renovation and completion of new access and distribution structures in the building. In addition, add new classrooms for experimental education. A project Realdania supported financially to ensure the quality of the renovation process.

The new building is for protected reasons located under ground, beneath an existing schoolyard. Daylight established via 4 large bright courtyards designed as crystal-like openings. The new building contains facilities for subjects primarily as the body and health, nature and technology. In addition, the new parterreplan a large common area which allows for experimental courses.
