In homage to the structures formerly on the areal, the new schoolhouse, with its metal façade and saw-tooth roof, has an industrial vibe. Situated next to the main building with classrooms, kindergarten and daycare, the second school building houses a multi-purpose gymnasium with a roof-top playing field as well as music rooms.
The school classes are distributed on three separate floors of the flat-roofed building; all can be accessed directly from the ground floor. The stairs to the various tracts are marked using large, isometrically shifted letters. The colourful modelling accentuates the 3D-effect of the letters. In addition, each tract has a designated colour that is echoed in the signage as well as on the floors and lavatories.
