Primary school in Esslingen-Zell
“A loose and at the same time assured arrangement of the buildings distinguishes this scheme. The urban space wraps around the existing historical school, the new school and the sports hall. This presents the entire building complex as a public place apt for the Zell primary school. The architectural quality of the ensemble convinces through its confident and gentle design. With its proportions and the materials used, the façades impart lightness, an approachable character and haptic qualities. The architectural character embraces the experience and perception of children." (Excerpt from the jury citation)
The competition entry achieved 3rd place and was awarded with an honourable mention.
