Copenhagen International School wins Commendation (International Projects) at the Civic Trust Award 2018 Ceremony in Manchester
12.3.2018 | From 234 worldwide applications Copenhagen International School was recognized as a project that makes a significant contribution to the quality and appearance of the built environment. Commendation level schemes demonstrate a good standard of architecture or design, whilst being sustainable, accessible and provide a positive civic contribution.
The school building’s unique facade is covered in 12,000 solar panels, each individually angled to create a sequin-like effect, which will supply more than half of the school's annual electricity consumption. The solar cells cover a total area of 6,048 square meters making it one of the largest building-integrated solar power plants in Denmark.
The promenade outside the school will become an urban port-side space providing opportunities for relaxation and various activities.
