In a non-differentiated, solidly greened area with neighboring industrial and residential buildings, a quasi-urban space was created by sinking the per se, non-spatial sports grounds by one level. The main entry, indoor sports halls, aula, library, and cafeteria are also at this level. A “rural seam” surrounds the complex, which as free-standing and likewise reserved volumes, adapts to the building height of the surroundings. The entire courtyard is furnished with a red colored tartan for track and fields and thus forms a uniform area for sports and breaks. The upper stories with the classroom wings are made up of a lattice system spanning two axes that entirely covers the three gyms in the basement. Air spaces between the third and fourth stories create possibilities for communication and support natural ventilation. Two atria likewise supply ventilation and also provide the classrooms with daylight. A simultaneously homogenous and dynamic image emerges on the façade through the three types of profile glass elements, whereby the alignment of opaque and translucent elements refers to the utilization behind.
