School building expansion - Knöllgasse 61, 1100 Wien
The problem of managing rapid expansion and a growing population is one that Vienna must overcome. The demand for additional infrastructure and public facilities is rising, particularly in areas with high residential densities.
430 kids are currently enrolled in 19 classes at the open primary school (OVS) at the Knöllgasse site in Vienna, Austria.
The process of planning for this construction site aims to enlarge the area by adding a new secondary schoolwith a capacity of roughly 400 students. Modern pedagogical approaches and altered usage requirements, such as afternoon care or learning in small groups, are given particular emphasis. Wood is a material that is perfectly suited for developing educational facilities with a favourable learning atmosphere and for transforming a school into a space of exploration and experience because of its tactile, atmospheric, and olfactory features.
The high degree of standardisation and prefabrication right down to the room module, the associated quick construction times, the low weight, the minimal space requirements, the dry construction site management with just-in-time delivery and assembly, and other benefits of modern timber construction must also be creatively exploited.
In particular, the following considerations must be included in the implementation of the design task:
_ In addition to the current school building, the newly built volume should offer at least 3,300m2 of useable space (4,500m2 of gross floor area GFA). It is important to consider the contemporary school building's spatial and instructional needs.
_ In the notion of flexible and forward-looking planning, the new building must be spatially connected to the existing building. This guarantees spatial adaptability in the event of shifting circumstances. The enclosed as-built blueprints can be used to determine the connecting heights of the existing staircases in this regard.
_ On the property is a building service sistem duct that needs to be kept accessible for maintenance. The site plan's 5m wide built-in terrace strip can only be covered up from a height of 4m.
_ The functional organisation chart shows a preliminary functional breakdown for the design. Classrooms are supposed to be organised around typical neighbourhoods, or "mufus".
_ Additionally, a typical gym, dining hall with sufficient common and recess rooms, and clearly defined exercise and open space areas are to be built for the new secundary school and the current elementary school.
_ A multipurpose auditorium for concerts or musical performances, optional open classes, a library with an open reading area, and other amenities are suggested.
_ Accessibility, potential escape routes, fire safety considerations, and circulation areas that are both economically and functionally feasible should all be carefully incorporated into the design.
