Process of design:
The design started with client’s two demands:
1.Since on the location there was an old school which had students, they wanted to start construction without any interference with the existing school as far as it possible.
- The common decision was to build a 12-class school which that whoud have occupied 1700 m2 of 3000 m2 of land(56%) . As the lot has a long side next to street(150 m ) it was challenging to put the volumes on site. The function of the building was a challenge on its own:
In one hand , it is for 6-12 years old children , who experience school as their first space to interact with society and in other hand , it is facing the city and every passerby will experience it.
Order of the function is based on to have the office area and the multi puepose hall connected to the city . Movement order is in a way to create hierarchy in child’s path from class to street and it avoids any complications. Space order is on a mission to create a space comprehensible for children and a land mark for citizens.
