Horten VGS College, Norway.

The boundaries of education architecture have really been pushed forward with this fascinating project we were recently commissioned to photograph. Nestled in the sleepy town of Horten, sitting on the banks of Oslo Fjord has risen a new standard of design.

Horten VGS college won the BREEAM AWARDS 2019, The Public Sector – Design Stage Award. The first BREEAM award to be given to a Norwegian project in this field. A strong focus was placed on the energy and environmental impact of the project by architects Link Arkitektur, with a reduction in climate gasses of 40% and a totally fossil free building site. Let’s hope this project inspires other architects to achieve more environmentally friendly structures that look this refined.
