Tham & Videgård has won the invited competition for a new school building at the Krabbesholm School of Art, Architecture and Design in Skive, Denmark. The jury stated that the T&V proposal through the use of brick walls and barrel arched roofs establishes a strong connection to the character and spatial qualities of the existing buildings, while it also will constitute a new and independent contemporary addition. The new building is organized around a covered entrance courtyard with direct access to the separate teaching studios.

From the jury report :
”Tham & Videgård’s proposal is formulated with a distinct and elaborate architectural language which includes clear references to the university’s other buildings and simultaneously stands out with its own distinctive identity. The building volumes, the covered courtyard complex and the choice of materials and treatment of daylight are further proof of a precise understanding of the requirements teaching activities and the daily life of the school impose on the new building.”
