Salmtal Secondary School Canteen in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany by SpreierTrenner Architekten

Saturday, December 1st, 2012

Article source: SpreierTrenner Architekten

The new school canteen of the Salmtal Secondary School in Germany was designed by SpreierTrenner Architekten (www.spreiertrenner.de) as a multifunctional building with the greatest possible flexibility. The space is used not only by children to eat every day, but also for special events such as music concerts, theatre plays or even Christmas fairs. This is why the main room was set out with a column-free square plan only subdivided by a mobile wall. The adjoining section at the rear contains all supporting facilities, such as a kitchen, storage space, toilets and staff facilities, etc. It has been set out with the option of extending it in the future.
