The primary cycle school is connected to a school building and an existing sports hall along the creek Walterbaach. Design of different volumes connected by a canopy overlooking a game terrace and oriented to the natural environment of the site. A covered courtyard was created between the existing building and the classrooms which provides access to the different floors of the new building and existing buildings such as the former sports hall and canteen / kindergarten. The construction was carried out in timber frame for the ground floor and first floor. Only a few concrete elements were executed in these floors (stairs and elevator shaft) and, for static and safety reasons. These elements are materialized by the visible concrete walls whose surface has been structured with vertical wood planks. The basement, dedicated to technical equipment and storage, is fully apparent with rough concrete. Most of the wooden elements were prefabricated, which helped save time on site and gave the opportunity to work simultaneously inside the building. These wooden elements were completely covered with plaster to ensure their fire resistance and to avoid over-sizing of the wooden building elements to achieve sufficient strength.

Owner approach of sustainability
The 3 cities responsibles of the school are part of the climate agreement and want municipal buildings to be renovated efficiently.
Construction based on low energy criteria: - thermal insulation of walls of +/- 24cm. - mineral thermal insulation of flat roofs: +/- 24cm. - mineral thermal insulation of floor slabs: +/- 14cm. - Installation of high performance exterior woodwork. - Air tightness of the building controlled via a blower door test. The building as been design in order to optimize the contribution of solar energy and natural light into the building through large windows in the classrooms and through the skylights at the courtyard. Two of these skylights give the possibility of having fresh air if necessary. The building was built contiguous to an existing building to provide a compact energy tower respecting the route of the creek "Walterbaach". This design permits maximum preservation of the environment and simultaneously optimizes the building area. - Renaturation of the creek by banks rehabilitation. - New plantings around the building. - Area designed around the building using natural materials such as grass and natural stone for access paths. - Building of a storm storage reservoir. - Use of LED lighting with presence detectors and brightness management. - Classrooms lighting divided in two distinct zones for better light management. - Heat management through external blinds with centralized management. - Use of delay taps. - Mechanical ventilation without air conditioning. - Use of environmental friendly materials requiring little maintenance
If you had to do it again?
using even more environmental friendly materials requiring little maintenance, and a design allowing more energy savings.
