Aurubis - Nordic Brown Copper
From the architect. In an old industrial town, Strømmen, some 20 kilometres from Oslo in Norway, White arkitekter has completed a new secondary school, Bråtejordet Skole. It is the first development in a new residential area. The school provides an innovative learning environment within a traditional education framework. White won the project through a design competition competing against 28 local Norwegian practices. The winning scheme “Rammer og nivåer” (frames and levels).was highly commended for its holistic approach. The proposal is founded on clear structures, where spatial thresholds serve as natural boundaries, between school and community as well as between different parts of the school. This creates a calm and secure educational learning environment – entirely in line with the desires of the school leadership – which allows students to focus in their study. The transition from the town to the classroom takes place via four distinct spaces: Tunet (the yard ), Platået (the plateau), Boksen (the box) and Rommet (the room).
