The building in the context of its surroundings
In order to make reference to the existing cubature of the buildings to each other, the volume was aligned with the narrow side to the street, whereby the building fits optimally into the overall ensemble with the centrally located historic school building. In addition, we were able to achieve a reduction of the already existing sealed surfaces in this way.
Construction and facades
Prefabricated wooden elements form the facade. These enable both economical use of materials and time- and cost-efficient construction. They also create the characteristic facade profile and give the building a pleasantly warm "wood core". Large windows connect the inside with the outside and let plenty of daylight into the rooms.
Greenhouses as a roof
What is special about this design is the position of the greenhouses - they are not just on the roof, they form the roof of the building. The elevated position allows for optimal use of the sun's rays, and the glass roof gives the building the appearance of being "opened up" towards the top. In this way, it is also light and airy when viewed from the outside, and even green when in use. In addition, the raised glass house saves space and prevents further sealing.
Events and courtyard sale
The main entrance is centrally located and clearly visible from the street at the front of the building. Thus, one can directly access the foyer and the courtyard sale via the small forecourt. The large gymnasium serves simultaneously as an event space and is connected to the rooms above via the tribune. For events, the various functions can be easily and flexibly combined with the adjoining areas to form a large, open space association.
