Education & Institutions
Ørestad high school’s main building was constructed in 2007 and is located in Ørestad City at Amager in Copenhagen, Denmark. The five-story building is known for its innovative architecture without traditional corridors and classrooms. Instead, there are open, flexible rooms adapted to the high school’s digital profile, where all teaching is web-based.
The open structure of the high school makes the building particularly suitable for natural ventilation of all open areas. The open areas include learning environments for both individual studies and group-oriented work, canteen, library and the big main staircase that takes you all the way up to the roof terrace. The staircase is at the heart of school's social and educational life and is the primary connection between the floors.
Ventilation is achieved through automatically controlled windows in the facades, evenly distributed on the five planes and through skylights. The windows are opened depending on the different areas’ need for fresh air. The skylights are also used for heat and smoke ventilation. In addition to controlling natural ventilation and smoke ventilation, WindowMaster also controls the solar shades as well as the heating in the building.
The external solar shades are composed of vertical slats with 230V motors supplied by COLT. Some slats are fixed, others can be rotated to 0, 45 and 90 degree positions. The regulation is automatic via WindowMasters system and is primarily based on indoor temperature and heat radiation from the sun. However, it is possible to override the automation manually.
Ørestad high school has won the Copenhagen Cultural Fund Prize in 2007 (Københavns Kulturfonds Pris) and Forum AID in 2008 as the best Scandinavian building.
