Challenge:

Making the best school in the city

Hardships:

  • The site has many limitations of both insolation and sanitary type

Solutions:

  • The building’s roof is asymmetric and has free slopes, continuing the theme of Comfort Town’s sloped roofs
  • The school’s achromatic facades emphasize the contrast with surrounding colour buildings
  • The building’s main expressive techniques are its shape and textures of finishing materials (metal, plaster and basalt)
  • The building’s hallways do not have dead ends but create a square-ring around rooms and recreational areas
  • The teacher’s lounge is designed in the open space format, offering comfortable conditions for internal talks, lectures and skill improvement

Facts and details:

  • The gymnasium accommodates 600 students
  • The cafeteria caters to not only the schoolchildren but also their parents
  • The school has a 200-seat assembly hall plus another lecture auditorium
  • Two gyms suitable for various sports
  • The school’s area includes a greenhouse and a small garden plot
  • 160 wells, 60 meters deep each, for a geothermal heat pump supply both heat and cooling to the school, thus ensuring that the school has an autonomous heating system
