Revolving around a project site in the new suburb NærHeden in Hedehusene, Høje Tåstrup, this paper seeks to give a new proposition of a future school with a sustainable approach. The adopted methods are an integrated design process with a holistic approach and with focusing on implementation of architectural as well as engineering considerations. The first part is a research of the mental and physical development of children, how architecture as a physical object as well as daylight can influence on the way children achieve knowledge. This part is mainly based on statements defined by selected architects and theorists. Firstly it becomes clear that physical activity, play and social development are important keywords in the ability and process of learning. Secondly the understanding of light’s influence on humans circadian rhythm are important aspect evaluated on both a perceptible and measurable
level. The final design of the school in NærHeden consist by five clusters divided in terms of subjects. A loop is introduced which works as the center for spontaneous meetings among the pupils and teachers, space for group works and the main flow which leads to all of the areas at the school. The subject laboratories and workshops is the main rooms for learning which all follow the regulations for indoor climate by implement deliberate passive strategies. The energy performance of the building meet the 2020 building regulations by implementing PV-panels as a sustainable active strategy. The final outcome is a school that creates the best learning conditions for children in Hedehusene that not only focusing on the academic knowledge but also invite to physical activity, movement and social development among children.
