Location: Ljubljana, Slovenia

 

Task: Our task was to design a new age school and question the regulations we now have, concerning school or kindergarden design.

 

Design: First, I changed the way we are taught from regular school to montessori, which also influenced the design and arrangement of school as a building.

On the location in the middle of the city, many trees are existing. Therefore, I designed a school under the trees, opened to exterior and with a lot of natural light.

The school is divided into three circular parts: gym, 1st trimester rooms and 2nd+3rd trimester rooms. All three parts join at the entrance with big common hall.
