Circular Kindergarten

The Swan is the world’s first sustainable kindergarten – a children’s house for the future based on the past and on a pioneering sustainability project. The children’s house is built as a circular structure, where part of the materials from the former Gladsaxe School are recycled, which means that waste quantities are minimized and the carbon accounts are reduced.

“This solution redefines today’s building methods and is an inspiration for the future. It is a beautiful meeting between architecture and a visionary municipality. It shows what a public authority can achieve if it is willing to fight for the right solutions. It raises the bar for what is possible in a municipal and urban context and gives a whole area a new image,” to quote from the comments in the nomination for Danish Design Award 2021.
