Proud winner of International Architecture Award 2018, from The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture https://www.internationalarchitectureawards.com/winners/
At one with nature
Our winning submission was designed to accommodate 380 students and 100 teachers over 6 vocational programs. They will be learning and teaching in rectangular structures forming an H-shape that extends into the surrounding landscape. This school is a hub for all sorts of activities and experiences, with a multifunction hall for sports and cultural events, as well as two courtyards and a canteen overlooking the nearby lake.
Out of the woods
One of the requirements of the competition was to use timber as a building material. Nordic has taken care to use timber both in construction and cladding, inside and outside. The composition, with large windows and skylights, creates bright spaces indoors, perfect for learning and being together.
Reading and drilling
Excellent facilities for the vocational programs are highly prioritised in Voss high school. Mechanical work shops are directly linked with classrooms for theory studies. Art works from various artists appear in all areas of the school.http://www.hordaland.no/nn-NO/skole/nyevossvgs/praktisk-info/om-skulen/kunst-pa-skulen/
