3rd Place School Extension Obertraubling, REGENSBURG

Our competition entry for a school extension in Obertraubling (district of Regensburg) was awarded one of two 3rd places. We proposed lengthening the existing building, thereby creating new classrooms and a cafeteria. The new gymnasium will be moved away slightly, naturally embedding itself in the hill. A spacious, protected outdoor space will be created on the upper level, serving as an extension of the play area for the pupils. The space between the two buildings will be a path elegantly uniting the school campus with the public realm. The jury commented: “…a very special space, we find. Even the sport and break time areas of the existing outdoor spaces benefit from potential views south and a direct link to the openly designed whole-day care area…”
