A lively communal meeting place 

At the centre is a bright lobby, around which the building extends into different wings in a star-like shape: a kindergarten, school, gym, and a wing for artistic and practical subjects. Sheltered and safe courtyards designed for different age groups are located between the wings. The premises are open, adaptable, flexible and promote a sense of community. The multifunctional nature of the premises, safety and the separation of groups have been taken into account in the design.

Natural larch wood and dark exterior cladding have been used in the façades, and the colourful panels enliven the overall look. In the central lobby, wooden panelling has been used to improve acoustics and add warmth to the interior design. Different colour schemes have been used to differentiate the spaces of the different wings. The classrooms are designed with neutral colours, while the lobbies feature brighter colours. The multifunctional furniture is tailored to the needs of the users. A stage opens up from the lobby staircase, which also functions as an auditorium. There is also a comfortable sitting area under the stairs. The bright lobby, which acts as the heart of the school, creates a sense of community and acts as the focal point of various parties and events.
