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.

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.

‘t Karregat in Eindhoven, Netherlands by Diederendirrix architects

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Article source: Diederendirrix architects

’t Karregat (1973) has been renovated by diederendirrix architects in conjunction with architecten|en|en and has space for the school, day-care centre and some community facilities. ‘t Karregat, designed by architect Frank van Klingeren, was one of the first multifunctional centres in the Netherlands. Underneath a large continuous roof, supported by steel umbrellas, he left free space without partitioning walls for a supermarket, small shops, primary schools, a sports hall, and a community centre. The building in the area Herzenbroeken in Eindhoven received ample international attention, but it turned out that the experimental lay-out didn’t work. The users themselves soon divided the space with partitions until the space underneath the roof was totally congested.

“We have designed the ideals of that time with current functionalities and techniques.” Paul Diederen, architect diederendirrix
