1st Prize, Educational Center, Holzgau, AT
competition for a school complex
The competition brief from the Municipality of Holzgau (Tyrol) called for the design of a new school complex combining a school, kindergarten, nursery, after-school facilities and gymnasium under one roof.
The concept behind the winning design from sphere by ATP envisages an open largely timber building which slips harmonically into the rural setting. The internal spaces are also make wide use of low-emission larchwood.
A central foyer integrates and serves the entire complex while meaning that every element can also be independently used. The group rooms can be flexibly used and the numerous glazed facades offer the children excellent views of the external spaces.
The flowerbeds, trees and bushes – and landscaped slide - of the adjacent “Alpine Park” offer a range of experiences to children of all ages.
