The Children’s Culture House mediates the varying scales of adjacent buildings through extruding and cutting their forms. The joint of the building, where the extened lines of the existing buildings meet, is low- ered to allow maximum sunlight to reach the neighboring courtyard.

The expression of the Children’s Culture House is surpris- ing and imaginative: the roof and facades are treated the same, and the House does not have a “start” and “end” as ordinary houses do.
The building is organized as a mountain. All interior spaces are visually connected, and are bound together by dynamic circulation. The house offers flexible spaces and cus- tomized furniture, which have been proven to enhance children’s creativity and active participation. The spaces provide oppor- tunities for varied use and accommodate age groups from 0-18 years with changing needs.
The construction details of The Ama’r Chil- dren’s Culture House have been designed in collaboration with Nøhr and Sigsgaard Arkitekter.
