Already providing service in the garden of Tevfik Fikret Primary School located in Bebek neighborhood of Besiktas district in Istanbul, the nursery unit, which fails to satisfy the needs is projected to be replaced with a nursery that can operate independent from the primary school. An area located next to the entrance gate of the school has been allocated for this function, which is restricted with the retaining wall formed by the elevation difference of the neighboring parcel on the west side and the school land on the north side. A double layered facade has been planned in order to meet the illumination need for education and whereas to reduce the heat effect in the summer months. The area remaining between these layers have been planned as a garden where students can grow plants. The entrance of the building, which is planned as two-stored, is projected at the 1/3 axis of its long side. The entrance area has been considered as cloakroom and reception. A semi-closed play ground has been created at the roadside of the building. The second floor of the structure includes two classrooms and wet areas. The classrooms have been projected on the upper floor in order to avoid the noise from the road as well as the school garden. The top of the circulation area has been projected to be transparent in order to make use of the structure in depth especially in the education season when day light is relatively less.

The project focuses on three main strategies to address the school’s requirements:
1. Maximize space. The space was not properly used since the corridor that connects the main door with the other floors was only used sporadically.
2. Equal size. The two classrooms were very different in form and size due to the plan’s layout. The target was to propose a new configuration that gives equal spaces for both.
3. Sharing activities. The new school’s philosophy has to do with sharing spaces to study and providing diverse number of possibilities to educators to perform new pedagogical practices. The two rooms in the existing condition were duplicating spaces for playing, studying, meeting, sharing, etc.

Being implanted up to the plot boudaries and limited on a first floor level, we were able to clear and transform the central part into a large, airy and protected yard. The constructions on stilts form wide covered playgrounds forming real exterior volumes. The student residence is taking place above, expressed in a high leveled volume as to create a distinct identity.

In 2013, the Khabele School purchased a 4-acre property with an existing daycare facility to expand their rapidly growing elementary program. In the school’s initial meeting with Derrington Building Studio principal, Tim Derrington, their directive was simple—design the campus as “a village in the forest.” The school’s limited budget and tight schedule, along with the site’s sensitive environmental restrictions, posed unique challenges.

Inspired in the duality between the world of adults and the world of children described in the work of Lewis Carroll, the project proposes transferring Alice ‘s universe to the primary school; a world full of sensations, experiences, games, scales and colors where both coexist.

The design of Mann Elementary School was conceptualized with a vision to unite indoor and outdoor learning spaces, and to centralize the collaboration of students. The heart of the school is layered with “green” spaces that foster sustainable urban gardening and promote nature-filled learning. The indoor and outdoor structures are intertwined with lush green spaces and botanical gardens that allow students to learn not only in their classrooms, but also outside, fostering curiosity, learning, and discovery.

An elementary school in a picturesque and tranquil suburbian town near Warsaw.
The building is embedded in a unique setting in the center of the town – surrounded by freestanding family houses, intimate gardens and an old church. In order to tie in to the existing context, the relatively large object was divided into several smaller ones, with the largest part – the gym hidden at the back.

Veli Vrh is a suburb in Pula with low density housing dominated by the school on top of the hill. In February 2008 the school caught on fire and burned down, creating an unusual void bordered with the pine trees in the middle of a typical suburban sprawl. This specific condition of emptiness was the basis for the design concept.
