Atzgersdorf Schools Campus in Austria

An educational masterstroke. The new schools campus was designed to future-proof the social infrastructure of Vienna’s Liesing district and play its part in the provision of schools and kindergartens of the very highest quality. The city’s brief required a low-tech building with high levels of energy and economic efficiency in both operation and maintenance.

Atzgersdorf Schools Campus

The new campus covers eight areas of education and caters for three groups of children comprising 1,100 pupils over three linked sub-sites. The complex presents a clean, crisp boundary to the busy Breitenfurter Straße while opening up to the quieter area and adjacent green space to the rear. The project is carefully bedded into its surroundings and tailored to the local planning framework. The main entrance foyer, for example, was conceived with a nod to the courtyard of the next-door factory. New spatial concepts for new learning: the individual school units inhabit self-contained parts of the building but are all accessed via the generously proportioned communication area to facilitate interaction between semi-public educational zones and the general school space.

Modular structure, intelligent energy concept. The deep recesses in the light-coloured plaster facades, designed to extend views, are key to communication between interior and exterior. The configuration and the small built surface area free up space for a large, well screened garden on natural ground that opens out into the outdoor areas of the surrounding neighbourhood. An assembly hall inside offers views from the main entrance through to the garden; teaching zones are provided with flexible-use spaces and terraces.

The materiality of the buildings conveys a sense of stable values just as the schools’ openness to new, modular concepts of learning is reflected in their structure. The management of energy inputs is equally innovative: compact building volumes, carefully controlled ventilation, photovoltaics and geothermal energy reduce overall energy consumption and ensure economical maintenance and optimum efficiency.

The project illustrates in striking fashion what modern educational buildings can look like – in terms of urban planning, design and environmental issues.
