School “Alfa”

This project was developed by Maria Levitskaya as a student from TU Wien and was submited to the WAS awards 2017 under the Facilities category.

The “Alfa” school is located in the center of Moscow, and it includes primary secondary and high school. One of objectives was to create two, essentially different spaces, for younger children and teenagers.The yard is divided, using central block of the building.There are big spaces inside of it, such as library, canteen and gym.The block slightly hangs over ground level, creating visual border between a silent garden and a playground on primary school area. Other two blocks are of gallery type.The glazed recreational zones overlook the green yard, creating contrast between classes and spaces for rest. For high school students there is an open sports zone for active recreation, that is separated from the garden with “Classes” blocks.
