#SCHOOL #ENVIRONMENT #WOOD
The Music and Art school comprises two buildingsAi??working separately until now.Ai??TheAi??classrooms are placed along the perimeter, while practicing halls and libraries are located in the middle of the
building. The compact plan is interrupted by theAi??courtyards, providing a lot of daylight andAi??reflected light inAi??the central parts of the school.Ai??The interior spaces of the Music school are marked by theAi??green colour, while the blue is for the Art school.
The Facade, consisting of massive timber panels, is covered with profile glass and it is a part of the energy efficientAi??natural ventilation system. Massive wood wall with lime plaster provides the good climate for people as well as for musical instrumentsAi??inside the classrooms. Building structure and materials work as passive environmental control at theAi??same time exhibiting it’s functionality. Inner concrete walls and through the glass visible outsideAi??massive wood wall exhibit their natural origin, which we find as an important issue especially at theAi??institutions of education. There is no single painted surface on a facade of school building, everyAi??material share its natural colour and texture.
