The project won 1st prize in an invited competition the autumn of 2007. With very few adjustments, the competition project was realized soon after.
The school is designed within a relatively compact building-structure. The roof is shaped as though the terrain is “folded up” from the ground, creating a powerful and encompassing dimension compared to the large surrounding landscape. The school- functions are gathered under the overarching roof-structure. An open landscape made up by smaller buildings, as “houses within the house”, creates a rich inner atmosphere.
Gjerdrum Secondary School has won the prestigious award "Statens byggeskikkspris 2010" (Norwegian Government's Building Award).
