take learning to new heights with kvorning shelters
Danish firm Kvorning Design recently took on the challenge of designing, producing and building a complete outdoor learning space on the Campus a local educational initiative, the LIFE foundation, in Kongens Lyngby, Denmark. Huddled around a campfire site, the clad in wood Kvorning shelters are in the form of four large triangular volumes of eight people where different activities can be organized. Together, these hypermodern structures are redefining the aesthetics of traditional classrooms and the way educational experiences are conducted.
“Corona has taught us to use the outdoors regardless of the weather, hour or season. […] Kvorning Outdoor Solutions series Kvorning shelters help ensure enjoyable outdoor experiences for everyone, no matter what. writing practice.

inviting wonder + exploration through dynamic composition
Once the project was complete, Kvorning took his drone out for a spin, capturing the minimalist yet dynamic geometric shapes of the shelters. The exterior facets reveal a skin of dark steel criss-crossed with thin strips of wood. At the same time, the interiors, entirely clad in warm-toned wood, are cleared of any furniture to maximize flexibility of use. As a result, from certain angles, the triangular classrooms exhibit a cavernous quality, inviting wonder and exploration.
“Now everyone can enjoy designer shelters and an unspoiled part of the Danish countryside just a short drive north of Copenhagen,” note the architects. Kvorning shelters sit next to the new LIFE buildinghousing indoor learning facilities, professional labs, etc.
