CONCEPT
A pleasant atmosphere and a stimulating environment were the two basic points of departure in the architectural design. This was achieved not only with a functional scheme but also with the intertwining of form, material and facilities.
“Fingers” of noise and “fingers” of greenery intrude into the volume, they transform it and create atriums. This is achieved with the principle of gradation – iridescence. The facilities in the ground floor are arranged and designed in line with the principle of gradation (the public facilities are on the noisy side – Dolenjska Street, while the quiet facilities – classrooms – are located on the eastern side, facing the natural environment). Gradation is also present in the articulation of the volume by height; the school volume rises terrace-like towards the north. The terrace-like principle offers very good conditions for sun exposure. The use of the principle of gradation results in the uniquely articulated and iridescent form of the school, offering a new, rich experience to school users. The school thus comes closer to the scale of a person.
