Primary School Doren A in Austria by Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten ZT GmbH

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

Article source: Cukrowicz Nachbaur Architekten ZT GmbH

Doren’s primary school is located on a steep slope in the centre of the village, alongside the church, rectory and town hall. The building also houses a sports hall and preschool. The five storey concrete building explores themes of rotation and the overlaying of multiple layers in horizontal and vertical. A spatial game is created by the shifting orientations as one moves from layer to layer and floor to floor. The external layer of the walls acts structurally, complemented by floor-to-ceiling beams spanning within the building’s depth. One large opening in each beam allows horizontal circulation from layer to layer. The concrete primary structure is legible and tangible from both inside and outside the school building. All non-structural elements are finished in untreated, native Silver Fir. The timber has been worked differently depending on its purpose: the walls planed smooth, the floors finely sawn. The palette for the new school has been distilled to two materials, one structural and one non-structural: concrete and timber. The new public square in front of the school serves both as a playground during breaks and the centre of social and civic life in the village.

Article source: Paul de Ruiter Architects 

In the first energy-neutral district of Amsterdam, the Houthavens, we designed the 4th Gymnasium. An energy-neutral secondary school that accommodates about 800 students. The school functions as the entrance of the new district. The Houthavens had an industrial role for years and will transform into a vibrant district with several islands in the upcoming years. A great variety of buildings and residents will take their place here. The 4th Gymnasium serves as a herald for the further developments of this area.

GD Goenka in New Delhi, India by Design Forum International

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

Article source: Epistle Communications

Educational Institutions across the globe are designed to facilitate the engagement of the young minds by creating interactive environments that are a blend of study, activity and play areas. In alignment with the same ethos, the GD Goenka group’s philosophy is to reinvent the school experience by creating the best physical infrastructure as per global standards, coupled with high quality, well-paidand motivated faculty. A simple and concise design brief was determined- to have class rooms that are equipped with the neoteric style of teaching and content. Unlike the use of traditional systems such as blackboards etc., novel educations tools take precedent in the contemporary education system; multimedia tools such as projectors, and adequate storage space for children to stack their bags, books, classrooms that are highly flexible to support a variety of formal and informal teaching methods etc. The design of the institutional development of a primary school (from kindergarten to class 5) enables these requirements while aiming to provide flexibility of spaces by making the building form itself as a part of the learning experience.

Sonoma Academy in Santa Rosa, California by WRNS Studio

Tuesday, October 4th, 2016

Article source: WRNS Studio

Last month, Sonoma Academy, an independent college prep high school located in Sonoma County, broke ground on a 22,000-square-foot expansion project, designed by San Francisco-based architecture and planning firm WRNS Studio. Situated on a 34-acre campus nestled at the base of Taylor Mountain, this marks the first phase of a two-phase campus-wide transformation. Known as the Grange & Studios, the two-level educational facility will add key academic, social and cultural spaces that will support the overall mission of the school. In less than 14 months, the project went from design phase to beginning construction.

De Opmaat extended school in Arnhem, The Netherlands by AHH

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

Article source: AHH 

De Opmaat, an extended school located where a meadow landscape meets the outskirts of Arnhem, houses a primary school, a nursery, a playgroup and a gym. The building has sloping roofs, staggered in relation to one another, with stairways, tribune steps, rooflights and roof vegetation. The form fits in with the surrounding area. Thanks to the green on the roofs, the view of the landscape from the houses on the other side remains intact. The glazed frontage on the north side refers to the nearby glasshouses.

TERESIANAS in Barcelona, Spain by Picharchitects

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Article source: Picharchitects

It is the extension of the Teresianas School of the c/ Ganduxer.

Because of its heritage value, the passage of time and the various education reforms, the school has been left without enough classroom space and recreational covered areas.

The new extension re-locates all grades and provides the school with new covered sports space with the necessary infrastructure to provide a service to the school and extracurricular activities.
