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.

Ada-and-Theodor-Lessing Adult Education Centre in Hanover, Germany by ahrens & grabenhorst architekten stadtplaner BDA

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.

Ruyton Girls School – Margaret McRae Centre in Melbourne, Australia by Woods Bagot

Friday, June 30th, 2017

Article source: Woods Bagot

With a focus on collaboration and individuality, the building provides students with technology-rich, interactive spaces. These include a mix of formal and informal learning spaces – a dedicated base for year 7 and 8 girls, science, drama and event facilities. The spaces are based on the concepts of transparency, mobility, adaptability and student-centeredness. The rooms have mobile furniture, allowing for maximum flexibility and an emphasis on collaboration. Internal glazing creates transparency between classrooms and the break-out space, doubling as an informal space for small group activities. The form and materiality is inspired by the medieval buildings of the Ruyton XI towns of which the school is named. The building is clad in stone pavers, which have been adapted for use as a rain-screen cladding system. This maintains the solidity of the surrounding brick buildings, while providing contrast in terms of scale, colour, vertical orientation, and sculptural form.

COF Outreach Village Primary Schools in Lwengo, Uganda by Studio FH Architects

Wednesday, June 28th, 2017

Article source: Studio FH Architects

The Cotton On Foundation is a non-governmental organisation from Australia which, amongst other programmes around the globe, is in the process of creating a total of 20,000 new educational places for primary and secondary school children in Southern Uganda by the year 2020. To achieve this ambitious target, several avenues are being pursued, amongst them the COF Outreach Village School programme which consists of the construction of primary schools in remote villages around the two districts of Rakai and Lwengo. Each school is to accommodate 500 students and ten teachers, the latter residing on site. Wherever possible, existing buildings are being upgraded and new buildings added as required. Three of these schools have been completed to date, five are under construction, and a further twenty or so are to follow in the coming three years.

Ancona School Gymnasium in Illinois by JGMA

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Article source: JGMA

Within the constraints of an otherwise non-descript box, design studio JGMA has inventively designed an attractive and engaging transformation that provides a constrained space with multi-functional capacity, while reinforcing the identity of a visionary school. Working on a small renovation budget, the Ancona School in Chicago’s southside Hyde Park had been fighting loud reverberating acoustics and harsh lighting in their undersized gymnasium, making use of the space nearly unbearable. The room is much smaller than any typical gym–a retro-fit holdover from an out-dated 1960’s construction–but it houses many of the school’s primary athletic functions and is the only school space large enough for family gatherings and school performances.

Extension of the Lycée Français de Vienne and Renovation of the Studio Molière in Wien, Austria by Dietmar Feichtinger Architectes

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Article source: v2com

The “theatre’s” particular cultural function, location and organisation in a historical building and the identity of the new school building are central to the project.

“Contrasts attract each other”

The attempt, in the 19th century, to open up the old riding school, is reflected in the new school building. It is reused and adapted in a contemporary current way. This use of contrasts – with different technologies, construction methods, materials and energy technologies – is also expressed through the reflection of the old building on the façade of the new school. This effect is reversed as soon as it gets dark, when the school building illuminates the old studio.
