Ambience

The classrooms are arranged on either side of the central atrium in the elongated volume. The central staircase and the skylight define the ambience in the central meeting area, which opens onto the cafeteria on the ground floor. This atrium is the beating heart of the school, the place where the everyday community life takes place. At the southern end of the building, the sports hall is sunk into the ground and can be accessed separately for after-school use.
