Overview

"Kjellgren Kaminskys strength has always been their strong will to create expressive and articulated architecture.. The Kolla School in Kungsbacka no exception in that sense.”

Per BornsteinArkitektur magazine
The Kolla School is a playful, inspiring and sustainable school environment centred around the students, with a building volume that is well suited to its purpose and context. The Kolla School is built as a supplement to an existing school where the schoolyard serves as a linking passage and provides a creative outdoor environment. The schoolyard facades are clad with fibercement boards in a colourful and playful pattern, while the street facade in brick has a more sober expression to establish a close dialogue with the surrounding areas. The Kolla School houses 360 students from ages 12-15 and is the result of 1st prize in an architecture competition.
The building is now one of Sweden's largest passive houses.
