The atrium hall with paintings on the wall in Harvey Elementary School on the island of Funen. Three windows which straddle the border between the roof and the wall take the northern skylight into the hall, and the outside can be seen from the passage on the second floor. The vertical glass is fixed from under the sloped glass, and the edge of the sloped glass is left as itʼs cut for water drainage.
