Montessoriskolen Lyse

Rehabilitation and extension of Montessoriskolen Lyse with 100 students from 1st - 7th Grade, expanded to 200 students from 1st -10th Grade. 

In Autumn 2018 Line Solgaard Arkitekter AS. and CEK studio for architecture and design got the task to develop the project for the new school. Villa Lyse is a protected building where no extension could be done, just restoring some original openings. The new school had to be established within the existing building.

A new kitchen, high school, administration, room for teachers, music room, toilets and lockers were built in a period of 5 months. The new school was ready to open in August 2019.

The new spaces are created following the philosophy of Maria Montessori. Each new function is embedded in its own large open space whenever possible. The new rooms are warmly framed open spaces so that students can work within an established order. 

Warm and long lasting materials to feel like home at school.


The construction lasted from 04.19 til 08.19.
