District school Mitte Altona

Instead of a clean functional construction, a building with an innovative room offer in a special atmosphere for contemporary teaching and learning methods and a space for neighbourly encounters is drafted. The design positiones itself to this role via a self-confident gesture and is with it's cubage purposely set apart from surrounding structures. The usage becomes readable, the differenziation between housing developments and the district schools public building structure recognizable. Thus the new building contributes to the urban surroundings structuring. The cubage reflects the inner organization: the public, also by residents and society used base connects the district with the school building. The transparent horizontal 'fugue' that includes the gym subdivides the building in a base for the common use and the clear educational areas, which 'floats' as self-contained volume above the 'fugue'. A central, light-flooded hall generates the school's common middel, which connects all floors and functional areas up to the roof top terrace. A visible and readable place for education is drafted and forms the Heart of the new district.
