Bringing light into hard-to-reach spaces
On January 1st, 2011, the District Council were packing their bags to move south towards Assens. The new Danish local authority reform meant that the old town hall had become superfluous and one of Aarup’s most central buildings had become available. This gave the Council an brilliant idea.
It had long been a plan to consolidate all of Aarup’s smaller kindergartens into a larger unit, so the deserted buildings seemed to be an answer to the Council’s prayers. The only problem was the building’s architecture, which made its rooms dark, damp and anything other than child-friendly.
How could one get light and air into a building with areas that were in many instances over 20 metres from the facade windows?
