School for 550 students

This project was developed by Dmitry Zinenkov as a student from SPSUACE and was submited to the WAS awards 2017 under the Facilities category.

Mandatory education in Russia is presented by three types of schools: primary, secondary and high. The school consists of two intersecting volumes – so there are 3 units  for each level of education and one common unit, where a dining room, an assembly hall and sports halls are located. Also this location allows to devide the space of the school grounds by 3 different areas. There are playgrounds of the primary school on the south, outdoor laboratories for the secondary and high school in the north and the sports area on the east. The constructive scheme of the school is concrete frame that allows to easily redevelop the space and to make small or large classes. There is also an elevator and ramps for low-mobility students.
