In the territory of New Moscow developer planned to open a private educational institution - boarding school for training from 7 to 11 grade with its own campus for students and teachers. First place in the competition in 2014 was a project of the Dutch bureau Atelier PRO, and now, in the process of reliazation, our workshop "Atrium" serves his co-author from the Russian side and performs the functions of the general designer.
Architecture is an important tool for shaping the image of the school and attracting students. The basis is the the guidelines of school construction being new for Russia but used abroad last 20 years - effective educating space, versatility and flexibility, comfort and safe. In terms of four-story school building is a three-beam star which north-eastern and southern rays houses classrooms, and in the west there is a sport block. However, the first thing you get is the lobby, which is part of the central nucleus of the school - multilight atrium, the main feature of the building.
It is difficult and, if necessary, transformable space most of the time performs the functions of a school recreation. But it may be an assembly hall that can accommodate all the students and teachers of the school, or small isolated audience. It adjoins the atrium space scene - great attention in the new school will be given to artistic and aesthetic education. Building levels combined staircase amphitheater and a conservatory with a "green wall".
From the south wing of the warm transitions can get to the hostel: just 4 houses will be built with a total capacity of 560 people. On the campus will be able to live also teachers: apartment type dormitory for teachers - three buildings of variable altitude.
The first priority has been as well the creation of individual and memorable appearance of the complex. The facades of the buildings constructed in the same materials, but differ stylistically and in colors that reflect the differences in the functional content. The main facade of the school material - light clinker and clinker tiles. The second most important (and the area of the facade) material - a gray anodized aluminum cladding.
The result becomes a bright diverse educational environment, where the child is comfortable and interested. A student stands not only the user, but he may change the space around it - to adapt it and adjust it.
