Kids City Prinsessegade


In a very flexible scheme the winning entry proposes a new norm for how the future welfare system of Denmark can embark on the challenges of a growing capital. Instead of one large institutional building we propose a city for children. A city where scale and intimacy create a comfortable part of the city designed for especially for children. Sustainable solutions, materials and architectural solutions all point towards quality of space and underline the content of the new kindergarden, afterschool club and youth club.
