Schoolyard in a cityblock?

Type: Competition entry / Educational

Location: Helsinki, Finland

Year: Competition 2015


International Competition








Making a city block and preserving a schoolyard with sunlight? We decided to propose a building that encloses three sides of the block and opens up to the park while extending the learning space outside with a terraced mass that is also harmonious with its neighbours.

Inside there are ample spaces for meeting and working in groups while having multiple different configurations of open space or classroom possibilities.
