Stelzhamer school Linz in Austria by kirsch ZT GmbH

Friday, April 1st, 2016

Article source: kirsch ZT GmbH

The objective was the redevelopment and extension of an existing school – a building made from prefabricated concrete slabs in the 1970s – in the centre of Linz. The building’s extension closed a gap of surrounding perimeter block development while at the same time creating an independent ensemble. Easy access to public transport and the location within a dynamically developing urban area justify the expansion of the school site.

Recovery Of An Area Called “Ex Furnace” For The Realization in Rimini, Italy by Pietro Carlo Pellegrini Architetto

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

Article source: Pietro Carlo Pellegrini Architetto

The project concerns the recovery of an Ex-Furnace in Riccione, an industrial complex for producing bricks, built in 1908 and decommissioned in 1970. The whole intervention area is 40.000 mq; the covered surface is 3.400mq. Old destinations give way to the new ones, exploiting the existing spatial possibilities, maintaining the shapes of the old body factory as historical memory of the place: inside of it will be placed a secondary school for 450 students, a  theatre with 650 seats, a headquarters office, as well as the organization of the external spaces. The project aims to reduce the environmental impact, replacing the old buildings with new ones characterized by high energy efficiency, without filling more surfaces. The intervention is imprinted on one side to recover and give value the existing masonry elements, on the other side to distinguish the new elements from the old ones, maintaining a compositional coherence throughout the intervention. Outside the brise soleil in brick elements determine the homogeneous backdrop of the original architectural forms, using a traditional material in an innovative way: they give unity to the whole composition and at the same time they underline the existing brickwork. The two buildings of the school centre, whose technical aspects are cuttingedge, easily conform with the ruins of a former brick furnace.

School Extension Elementary School in Vienna, Austria by kirsch ZT GmbH

Sunday, March 20th, 2016

Article source: kirsch ZT GmbH

The “Open Air” School of the city of Vienna, often referred to as the \”Baslerschule\”, completed in 1951 and designed by Roland Rainer, is located on the southern outskirts of Vienna (23rd district) in the middle of a heterogeneous environment. This elongated, L-shaped, single-storey, landmarked building with a gabled roof received an extension in the 1970s in the form of four free-standing annexed classrooms constructed in wood adjoining the eastern end of school grounds.

Victory Heights Primary School in Dubai, UAE by R+D Studio

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016

Article source: R+D Studio

Located inside the Sports City of Dubai, Victory Heights is a primary school spread over an area of 1.5 acres. The client’s brief envisioned the school to be a space that is conducive to a child’s evolutionary development – almost like a trigger where he/she is driven to act, explore, discover, invent and most importantly, be inquisitive. The design followed through by manifesting itself into an organic entity, almost like a little children’s village. Rather than exemplifying the typology of an academic quadrangle, the school functions as an arrangement of clusters that are strung together around different ‘Pods’ of interaction.The complex includes a primary school wing, a Kindergarten wing, and accompanying recreational and administration areas. Through this broader classification into two separate wings, a central courtyard emerges, where the children of different age groups can converge, interact and play with each other.

Gokceada High School Campus in Çanakkale, Turkey by PAB Architects

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

Article source: PAB Architects

Gokceada is a characteristic island in Northern Aegean Sea with small scale masonry houses in organic urban patterns. Being on an island, the town is an isolated settlement with limited resources. Therefore the main aim of Gokceada High School Campus, which includes a high school, vocational school, dormitory, gymnasium, library, and a conference hall, is to create an integrated life within educational-social entity of the school and the urban life. By this means, the campus will not only be used in the school hours, but it will serve for 24 hours to the people of the island as an open campus with a projection of sharing limited resources efficiently.

REFURBISHMENT OF 906 SCHOOL in Barcelona, Spain by H ARQUITECTES

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

Article source: H ARQUITECTES

Strategies

The school is located in the urban city center of Sabadell, in a corner shaped by two buildings aligned to the street. Both volumes create a wide courtyard with a sports center located in the basement.

The proposal involves only the oldest building (1959) which hosts the pre-school classrooms and few outdoor spaces.

The essential strategy consists on taking advantage of the huge potential of the original building, both the constructed surfaces as well as the useful spaces.
