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.

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.
