Education with a clear identity

Focused on pupils’ needs to learn and thrive, Jetsmark School Centre will also have a clear and strong architectural identity. It will be a pleasant and engaging place to learn, play and work and will also engage the local community to play an active role in the day-to-day life of the school.

Jetsmark is built as a three-track school, covering 0-9th grade and an integrated after-school programme. The nearby Jetsmark Sports Centre will be used for physical education and sports activities.

A unifying cultural institution

The vision for Jetsmark School Centre is to strengthen the cohesion of the three nearby interwoven towns of Pandrup, Kaas and Moseby. Our goal was to create a centre for culture and learning that strengthens the identity of the area and serves as a meeting point that unites the three villages. Located in the heart of the new city park, the centre can accommodate and facilitate a range of activities and events, such as teaching, cultural events, club activities and meetings.

A fluent transition from inside to outside

The buildings are organised to create a series of small sheltered spaces for learning and play, reinforced by the blurring of indoor and outdoor areas.

The project was designed to maximise flexibility; overlapping functions ensure an optimal usage of each square meter. All areas are designed to be used in for education purposes. However, both indoor and outdoor spaces can be used for several different purposes without interfering with the main purpose of each space.

Scaled for purpose

The light brick volumes are stretched out like a row of pearls in the open landscape, appearing welcoming and inviting to students, teachers and members of the local community. With their varying sizes, the volumes are scaled according to their purpose, with the smaller ones to the south housing younger children and after school activities.
