During the fall 2012 Krabbesholm Højskole has expanded its studio spaces and workshops. The new buildings are sited at the northern end of the campus with a total area of 600 m2. The new buildings provide workspaces for three of the school’s main subjects: Design, Architecture and Art, as well as for a photo studio.
The idea of expanding the school developed as the teaching got increasingly ambitious. The project aims to unite the school’s five main subjects; thereby encouraging collaboration and interdisciplinary teaching, and avoiding the establishment of independent specialized teaching units. The new buildings form a small “teaching village”, located behind the school’s main building.
The architects behind the project are the up-and-coming office MOS Architects, based in New York.
Another idea of the project is to reestablish a separation between student dorms and studios. In connection with the new buildings students have moved from the current dorms next to the woods into the “Håndværkerskole” at Krabbesholm Allé.
