Two existing schools were to be merged into one with a total of a thousand pupils. The strategy of the studio was to establish a constructional rational setting, where concentrated zones of spacious complex nature could unfold. To utilize the height differences of the terrain we placed four buildings each on their own landscape elevation. In each building a cube is placed centrally, where the smaller spaces of the school are stacked on top of each other to create opportunities for group work.
