Schulareal Waldegg, Rotkreuz
Competition / 2nd prize
Full renovation of a secondary school with new construction of kindergarden facilities.
The heterogeneous Waldegg school grounds, with buildings of different characters and a variety of outdoor spaces, have a wealth of qualities that will be retained. The expansion of the secondary school building will be comprised of a one-storey, glass addition, which heightens the character of the building and lends it a classical structure. The existing spaces for regular lessons will be converted into large learning studios, while the new floor will house the subject classrooms. The new construction with the kindergarten and daycare facilities will skirt the main access road as a long, low-slung timber building, creating a clear and friendly main entrance to the school grounds.
