In urban planning and architectural terms, the “sporty” shape of the site calls for a rationally organised building in order to provide the spaces called for in the schedule of accommodation as well as the qualities expected. First of all, sufficient open space was to be left to provide areas where the pupils can move around freely. In response to the narrow shape of the site the building was conceived as an elongated, stepped three-storey volume.
This generates several advantages:
• An appropriate distance to the NMS is achieved
• Along the entire length of the site sunny, south-facing outdoor spaces are created – in the form of “front gardens” to the individual ASO classrooms or the schoolyard.
