MUTOPIA presents the X-House

Finalizing the second round of the competition for the adaptive re-use of shutdown schools, the team lead by MUTOPIA presented for the LOA jury the X-House, a proposal for the transformation of the Vester Hæsinge School into a new community center.

The new X-House responds to the motivation of the local community to transform the shutdown Vester Hæsinge School into a Nature&Health community center, in order to create social value by uniting the dynamic surrounding nature with an active effort towards promoting health, cultural and social related activities.

MUTOPIA’s proposal is a strategic intervention aiming at providing the existing x-shaped building mass of the Vester Hæsinge School with a new active center: a flexible space which reinforces the programmatic diversity of each arm of the x, while in the same time providing a new identity for the new X-House as a ‘social greenhouse’.

Out of the transformation proposals of the 5 teams selected for the second round of the competition, 3 will be shortlisted by LOA mid-November for further project development leading to construction with the financial support of LOA (Lokale og Anlægsfonden).
