Tagaborgsskolan – Helsingborg, Svezia

School rubber surfacing with smooth flooring Kayar.

The famous Swedish architectural firm Tengbom Architects, active for over a century and with a portfolio of prestigious projects in various sectors – from Stockholm City Hall to the recent “10 smart sqm” housing unit – have completed the new Tågaborg school, recently opened in the center of Helsingborg, Sweden. The school, attended by 550 students of ages 6 – 15, is based on the modern pedagogical approach of encouraging continuous dialogue with teachers in order to obtain the best possible result. Also the architectural design of the building, which replaces the old Magnus Stenbocksskolan school now used as social housing, is based on the theme “Which is the best school?”. It was necessary for the design solutions to have both aesthetic and functional qualities, because the premises must inspire the exchange of knowledge and ideas.
