Sølvgades School is being extended to enable it to become a two-track school.
A new school building of approximately 2,400 m² is being constructed in the existing school courtyard, while the listed school building from 1847 is being extended.
The new, six-storey school building inclines in order to accommodate the surrounding housing blocks: both the tall houses in Klerkegade and the lower ones in Sølvgade. The school area is surrounded by an old green border hedge which embraces the entire campus. This will be replaced by a new glass fence, which will also be integrated into the ground floor of the new building.
The building has been constructed in compliance with the latest guidelines for environmentally-friendly development issued by Copenhagen Municipality. The project has achieved environmental classification as a 'low-energy class 2' building, which means that its energy consumption does not exceed 68 kWh/m²/year.
