Stjernen (The star)
A star in the landscape.
Tjørring School and the Children’s institution the Star is one of the country’s most interesting institutional buildings. The vision was to “create an innovative and visionary institution and school where pedagogy and architecture work together in harmony”, and it was successful.
The Star got its name, because when viewed from above it looks like a large green starfish. Each of the five arms has a separate function, such as housing nursery or reception classes, kindergarten and after school programme, form levels 0-3, form levels 3-6 and the school’s workshop and staff facilities, meet-ing rooms and offices.
Take a tour around the school on the 740-metre long path called The red carpet and experience the spectacular architecture. Along the way, you will pass the carefully planned outdoor spaces that encourage both play and learning. Every outdoor space has its own theme: urban, hills, forest, water, sand and garden.
