Casa de Magalhães Nursery School in Ponte de Lima , Portugal by Carvalho Araújo

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Article source: Carvalho Araújo

The ‘Casa de Magalhães Nursery School’ is located near the ‘Casa de Magalhães Home for the Elderly’, sharing some functionalities like public access, parking and a few services. The nursery school building arises from a volume displacement that is subtracted from the home for the elderly base building, allowing the creation of a courtyard and, at the same time, the new building for the children. Although both buildings take different languages, they share the same DNA, the same “skin”, which results in some common principles like privacy, security, intimacy and comfort. The initial volumetry of the set brings us to the cyclic process of life itself, as a metaphor of the aging process; from small to big, from simple to complex.

Óscar Romerocollege in Dendermonde, Belgium by De Jong Gortemaker Algra Architects

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: De Jong Gortemaker Algra Architects

The south side of the Óscar Romerocollege borders on the historical inner city of Dendermonde. The patchwork sequence of courtyards and streets is typical of this location. Two college buildings have already been built. A further two buildings – a tuition building and a sports complex – will be added and are intended to strengthen the school’s identity. We have extended this objective to include a connection to the historic centre. A connection that has been created by blending into the structure of the public spaces. The existing courtyards have been extended to include two new courtyards and a promenade. The four school buildings, each of which has its own individual appearance, create a powerful rhythm on the north side. This is where the main entrance is located. A covered path connects the existing and new buildings and takes the students past the different courtyards, each of which has its own function and identity.

Amatrice refectory in Italy by Stefano Boeri Architetti

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Article source: Stefano Boeri Architetti 

After a construction period of only 30 days, the new school refectory for Amatrice has been realized, thanks to the fundraising organized by Corriere della Sera and TgLa7 with the initiative “Un aiuto subito”. The school refectory, designed by Stefano Boeri Architetti, has been conceived as a multifunctional space for Amatrice’s children and it will become a gathering point for the local community, where people can meet, play and, maybe, stop for a while and look at the Sibillini Mountains, framed by the wide window in the main hall.

Zalmplaat School Rotterdam in Netherlands by diederendirrix

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Article source: diederendirrix 

In the design of the new Zalmplaat School, the expressive and soft building volume is equipped with two floors with rounded corners, creating an all-round soft shape. Colourful letters and strips in combination with wavy movements of the frontage make a characteristic and expressive building; a school with a familiar yet personal and distinctive expression, recognisable for the children, teachers and neighbourhood.

The project area is located in the outskirts of Villafranca and Verona, between the urban core and the agricultural land.

The more distinctive presence is  the “strada della Rizza” around which is structured the small village Rizza,  that’s  a quite busy output axis of Verona.

The new building is designed as a reconstruction and expansion of a previously existing one  lying parallel to the “strada della Rizza”  and looks like an inhabited wall that protects the school from the nearby road.

Roskilde Festival Folk High School in Denmark by MVRDV and COBE

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

Article source: MVRDV 

The Danish folk high school is based on the Danish author and teacher N.F.S.Grundtvig (1872) idea of the folk high school – a school that in many ways differs from normal high schools, for example, the school has no curriculum and no exams, and both students and teachers are living at the school during a course. Further are the folk high schools often focused on creative and humanistic topics and the common life at the school. Roskilde Festival Folk High School is the first newly-established and built folk high school of its kind in Denmark in 45 years, based on the ideals of the Roskilde festival. The ideals and values are very much influenced by the volunteer engagement, the humanistic focus and creative power, that every year forms and characterise the event and the community of Roskilde festival.

Colégio dos plátanos in Sintra by murmuro

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

Article source: murmuro

Colégio dos Plátanos is a school in Sintra which educates children from the age of 3 to 14; the project consists of the expansion and reorganization of the school. Having acquired a set of low quality buildings east of the existing school, the client intended to demolish them and expand the school complex eastwards, adding a series of new classrooms, complementary spaces and sport facilities. During the design phase the client changed course and decided to maintain the east buildings and commissioned a new construction of smaller scale, connecting the east and west buildings that had to be built in two phases, allowing for a reduced investment since our country was facing an economic crisis and on the verge of the troika intervention (IMF, EC, ECB). This decision also required the development of an intermediate structural solution and controlled demolitions in order not to interrupt the daily school operation; only with the conclusion of the second phase will the entire complex be fully articulated.
