school on Zehdengasse

Vienna 21

1996

The site, which is bordered by a street on two sides, is occupied completely by the new building, whereby three garden courtyards in the west, each with spatial definition on three sides, and an atrium in the east
are out of the massing. The main sequence of spaces lies along the ­north-south axis between the classrooms; it is structured by three different types of lighting. The rectangular part of the site hosts classrooms positioned at right angles to one another, while the gym and other shared spaces are situated in the triangular part facing the street.
