The new city school in Frederikshavn, Denmark is a big school by Danish standards with 1,200 students between 1st and 9th grade and a large contingent of special attention classes. With its starlike shape all class rooms in the school can be placed at a facade with direct access to light and fresh air. At the same time the star shape gives an optimum background for natural ventilation and easy access to the playground. The school has two floors for the older students and one floor for the smallest children.
