Text description provided by the architects.
Situated on the edge between open park and forest is the House of Nature accommodating the teaching of “Nature and Out door life” at Silkeborg Folk High School.
As a reference to the forest and the scheme of the building the use of wood is mandatory.
Used for both interior, exterior, insulation and construction the material procures the minimized lifecycle carbon footprint of the building.
Furthermore, the use of screw pile foundation eliminates the need for concrete and beneficently allows the building to extend in between the trees of the forest and provides each room varied views and connections to the forest..
