FELT won the Open Oproep competition for a new primary school adjacent to an existing nursery school.
The design tallies perfectly with the surrounding town, residential area and meadows of the valley. The compact building is positioned near the border of the site, providing a large space for the school’s playground and a green corridor with a path.
The new building is designed in tune with the architecture of existing nursery school through the use of style, materials and appropriate sizing. The scheme of the building is characterized by its rational and economic structure. The building consists of two wings connected by a central hall. This renders a clear and straight-forward scheme with an efficient circulation. The west wing is directed towards the landscape and hosts nine classes: pitch roof classes and garden classes. The other wing is directed towards the playground and the nursery school and makes up the gymnasium and the refectory.
