Grønnegården – Herning High School

Schønherr: The garden project has been built around a single geometrical form and a rectangular lawn which connects to the various manifestations of the buildings and allows the user to peacefully enjoy the surroundings. In the grass, a concrete landscape made of cast-in-place concrete has been created. The ‘landscape’ consists of asymmetrical shapes which rise and fall in order to create sitting, study, and relaxation areas. Mountain pine and Siberian birch are placed all over the garden in order to provide it with a green sense of nature and space all year round. The trunks of the trees add a subtle and poetic interaction with the natural light and shadows of the garden.
