Longlisted for this year’s Mies van der Rohe Award, Danish architect CEBRA’s ‘Children’s Home for the Future’ is a pioneering project for a new type of 24-hour care centre for marginalised children and teenagers, establishing an idea for social care that promotes the facility as four interconnected homes rather than an institution. With pitched roof forms clad externally in wood, intimacy is promoted with Troldtekt acoustic panels internally, made of 100% natural wood fibres – a cradle to cradle product whose use is helping teenagers adapt to life in the big wide world.
