Objectives of school retrofit:

- Energy performance comparable to that of a new construction
- maximum day light
- optimal air quality
- sustainable materials
- short construction phase


Proposed solutions:

- removal of all damaged items and all thermal bridges
- conservation of the basic structure as a support and mass storage for hot and cold
- refurbishing of the thermal envelope
- contemporary architecture combined with functional design
- inside: bright ambience and natural materials


The existing building had a very poor energy performance. Strong reduction of the energy consumption and use of sustainable materials will enable the reduction of maintenance costs. The existing facade elements have been dismantled and immediately replaced by new insulating wooden elements that are partly prefabricated. This method allowed to conduct parallel work within the building and reduce construction time.
