Our Scope

– Participation Process

– Interior Design and Service

 

Participation

Contemporary pedagogy requires modern spatial concepts. The classroom is not the smallest entity anymore. The spatial resolution and transformation of traditional classrooms to modular educational systems, requires rethinking, in terms of building new learning environments. Our task was to transform educational and organizational concepts, which have been discussed with the teachers, into specific design layouts.

 

Architecture

The building is the extension of a school campus which can accommodate 350 students. The historical site is heritage-protected, ancient vaults underneath and ruins had to be refurbished and integrated into the new structure. The steep terrain and the accessibility to the main building on the hilltop, were additional constraints, leading to a horizontal partition of the building. Both lower floors are characterized by the ancient masonry walls which, together with additional glazing, define the enclosure of the lower floors. The former ruin now constitutes the hallway to the upper floors. The static and inflexible ruins with their minerally plastered walls refer to the historic importance of the site. The contemporary architecture of the upper floors consists of flexible interior walls and brushed aluminum cladded exterior walls. The juxtaposition of these elements gives the school building a distinct and identity establishing appearance.

 

Cultural Sustainability

School buildings must be the reference, if we consider building as a cultural achievement In this case, it is the provision of sophisticated spatial resources for modern pedagogy, and on the other hand it is the reunion with the past, respectively the implementation of the ruins, which will be perceived physically and spiritually every day, by students and teachers alike, whereby architecture is contributing to knowledge.
