A simple, precise relationship between landscape and building complex, respecting the grandeur of the landscape
New, parallel-form school from Year 0 to Year 9, incl. an after-school centre and sports hall. The 1st phase consisted of Year 0 to Year 3 and the after-school centre.
Extract from the jury’s appraisal:
“The proposal features a simple, precise relationship between the landscape and the building complex, respecting the grandeur of the landscape, and thereby living up to the exclusive location.
In the final extension the structure consists of three ‘four-winged courtyards’, each of which is a sculptural, brick-built element. These elements are topped by pitched roofs. Rising from one storey towards the west to two storeys towards the east, they emphasise the natural terrain.
“The proposal consciously plays with the relationship between outdoors and in. In contrast to the landscape’s vast, simple scale, each of the three units contains an inner protected courtyard, which serves as a recreational and educational area, designed with great variety and many applications.
“The project’s different spaces and spatial connections feature a high level of variety, convincingly combining architectural precision and a wealth of experiences. The buildings are also significantly flexible in both the short and long term. The way the structure is built means that, in the long term, it will be possible to remove or move the majority of the internal walls, while a wide range of built-in combination options facilitate new groupings from hour to hour or from week to week.
In this respect, the classroom sections are particularly flexible and able to support both present and future education principles for teaching and learning.”
