  Architecture   The focus of the new plus-energy school is on the sustainable and ecological construction in accordance with the Passive House standard. The new location replaces the existing site of the St. Franziskus-Elementary School in the surrounding area. The school building is built almost entirely as a timber construction and therefore largely from renewable materials in CO2-neutral construction. The three-storey school building has no basement and consists of two parts.
