Competition schoolhouse expansion and day-care center in Chamoson
The subject of the project is the expansion of the school building with two new volumes, which will be realized in two construction stages. Together with the existing buildings, they form a new unit. The unit is offset with a gradation of the terrain to make protected outdoor spaces for children.
The first building houses the school and the day nursery. The new building defines the exterior spaces depending on the function. A ramp leads to the upper level, on which the different schoolyards with the respective entrances are arranged. Inside, the classrooms are arranged in a circle around the courtyard.
The second building is a pavilion for the day-care center, which docks on the north side of the existing multi-purpose hall and uses its roof as a protected outdoor space.
