The existing schoolhouse was built inside an old manor’s stables and octagonal limestone riding area with a tower. The School lacked a gym, but as the budget was small and the building situation was complicated, we combined simple boxes of wood, glass, stone and metal to find an easy, nice, functional, and cost effective solution. The New building consists basically of two parts, natural wood covered support facilities at the front, and a black metal gym box at the rear. The main street orientated facade is partitioned to offer a more organic look and the washrooms have circular windows. The gym remains (and holds) a minimalistic line. In between the old and new buildings is a micro-garden for children to enjoy.
