CIS - Copenhagen International School

The EJ 2100 sofa takes center stage in an International Environment

Copenhagen is setting a new ideal with its International School in Nordhavn CIS, which unites modern architecture with sustainability and decor. The school is designed by Danish architectural firm C.F. Møller.

A unique piece of architecture

The unique façade is covered in 12,000 solar panels, each individually angled to create a sequin-like effect, which will supply over half of the electricity consumed by the school each year. The solar cells cover a total area of 6,048 square metres, making it one of the largest building-integrated solar power plants in Denmark.

A construction to be proud of

‘We are proud that through the construction of the school, we will be able to take the lead and set a good example by showing how you can integrate innovative architecture into the curriculum. Our aim is to strengthen the student’s competencies in an international environment, so they will become competent world citizens with a focus on sustainability,’ says Brit van Ooijen, Chair of the Board for CIS.

The largest school in Copenhagen

The school is 25,000 square metres, making it the largest school in Copenhagen. 1,200 students from all over the world attends the school, which opened in 2017.
