New Nursery School and Elementary School for the German School in Madrid, 2006
Architects: Hermoso & Heimannsfeld
The two buildings have different designs, responding to their different needs. The nursery school is composed by a translucent skin giving an organic effect. The elementary school complex consists of a variety of exterior spaces for the breaks, games and sports. On top of the first floor of the school is a covered courtyard which can be used as an athletics track. The roof of the second floor of the school is designed as an ecological garden, an exterior space to encourage awareness and creativity in the different groups of pupils.
