Fairview Independent High School in Kentucky, Tennessee by Nomi Design

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

Article source: Nomi Design

Located on the outskirts of Ashland, Kentucky, Westwood is a small, yet tight knit community.  Originating in the 1920’s as a steelworker’s enclave, it has suffered its share of set-backs with the decline of that industry. Currently, 14% of the occupants of Westwood are under the poverty line, 20% of those under 18 years of age. With that said, schools really need to matter here.  In underserved communities in our commonwealth, schools can be the saving grace for many children. A focus on custom design drove everything we did as we worked to create a unique, functional, responsible, beautiful place. In the case of Westwood/Fairview, we have what we find often in Kentucky as a rural/urban center. This small community has its town core anchored heavily by this school.  By encouraging the school leaders to save the existing buildings and add something with an Architectural presence, we created a neighborhood identity through a new architecture at the same time conserving an existing landscape. By the sheer nature of the infill we could provide the school with a Main Street front door and create a walkable condition for the students.  Small communities in many places also use their schools as community centers and a place to gather and this is no different. This is now a new, vibrant public space for those with and without children. As with all schools, design on the human scale is pertinent so that the children feel engaged with the spaces they will learn in. It is our belief that for children to be inspired, they must learn in inspired spaces.

School of Alfa Omega in Tangerang, Indonesia by RAW Architecture

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Article source: RAW Architecture

Alpha Omega school is an educational building with spirit of locality. Located on Tangerang city, it sat on 11700 sqm area with the prior condition of swamp and paddy field. The design responded this unstable soil condition by raising structure to 2.1  m high above the ground. The site itself was chosen as part of design scheme, —corresponding to its natural surroundings, in order to give children sense of closeness to nature, thus invoking outdoor-learning experience.(The building integrates 4 modular buildings, with efficient access point in one central court yard, due to limitation of local land zoning of what can be built and what can not be built.)

Tevfik Fikret Elementary School in Istanbul, Turkey by Öney Architecture

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

Article source: Öney Architecture

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.

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Article source: ahrens & grabenhorst architekten stadtplaner BDA

The new school ensemble of the Adult Education Centre in Hanover, Germany, consists of four elements. The three existing building components of the former School for the Hearing Impaired were closed by a new building attached to the existing volume, thus forming a cuboid. It then results in a roofed patio that can be used as a meeting space, for gatherings, or events. The patio presents the lively heart of the ensemble.
