The Children’s Culture House mediates the varying scales of adjacent buildings through extruding and cutting their forms.
The joint of the building, where the extended lines of the existing buildings meet, is lowered to allow maximum sunlight to reach the neighboring courtyard. The expression of the Children’s Culture House is surprising and imaginative: the roof and facades are treated the same, and the House does not have a “start” and “end” as ordinary houses do. The building is organized as a mountain. All interior spaces are visually connected, and are bound together by dynamic circulation.
The Children’s Culture House is an innovative project developed with the fanciful and fun input of children. The Culture House is a Danish Villa Villekulla that offers a unique range of spatial experiences and cultural activities. The house offers flexible spaces and customized furniture, which have been proven to enhance children’s creativity and active participation. The spaces provide opportunities for varied use and accommodate age groups from 0 -18 years with changing needs.
