Schools on the Lake

A primary school, a new Middle School and a triple gym are planned on a site near Lake Constance next to an existing ice rink. The precise siting of the school building and the new sports gym in combination with the ice rink will result in a central location functioning as meeting place and distribution space.

The slight offsetting of variously tall, individual buildings in relation to one another creates a spatially differentiated ensemble with excellent communicative qualities and orientation potential. The school building is conceived as a double-storey building with intersecting school yards, which open up into the surrounding open space.

 

A central connective axis (»boulevard«) cuts longitudinally through the middle of the building. The individual academic departments and their facilities are accessible from here. On the upper floor there are 9 clusters, each with centrally sited learning landscapes.
