1st place

The project for Marthagården includes the renovation and transformation of two existing listed buildings, a new building and exterior landscaping of the nursery. The character of the site today with its two detached urban villas and luscious garden gives Marthagården its special atmosphere and identity. This identity, or Marthagårdenness, is preserved and strengthened in the new project in a variety of ways. For example, the new building does not extend on the structures of the existing villas, but instead connects them underground. In addition the project creates new unique spaces for the institution – including a sunken courtyard and a roof playscape on top of the new building. In this way the project introduces a series of new worlds to Marthagården with individual characters and potentials that supplements the existing qualities of the site.


The new Marthagården is a nursery with an enormous diversity in spaces for playing, learning and relaxing thereby supporting the physical and educational development of the children.

Marthagården is the second home of the children and for the children to feel at home the new project creates safe environments rich in character and identity. Marthagården will be an institution that integrates architecture, design, nature and technology and with the individual child at the centre introduces an inclusive community with a place for everyone.


The project is a collaboration with Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter
