A Citizen-Friendly School of Administration in Wien, Austria by AllesWirdGut Architect

 
April 3rd, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

The only enclosure around the new school in Embelgasse is the perimeter of the block. With its large glass surfaces, the ground floor affords an insight into everyday school life, opening the inside of the block to the street. The outward appearance of the new vocational training school is characterized by openness, transparency, and through‑views.

A Citizen-Friendly School of Administration

On the upper floors, what is going on inside the school is presented, in a typecase-like grid pattern, as part of the facade and thus of the street space.

Site Plan

In this way, the close connection between administration and the public finds positive architectural expression on both sides.
Through a generous two-level lobby, students have direct access to the classrooms that begin from the second floor upward. The lobby brings the airiness of the courtyard into the building.

Site Plan

Classrooms are kept transparent toward the circulation and communication areas – a continuum of interrelated learning, working, and communication spaces.

Complementing this is a number of varied outdoor spaces: a shady inner courtyard, a sunny roof terrace and a courtside terrace on the second floor so that students have an outdoor space close at hand at any time.
