The secondary School of nursing Maribor
The school complex of SZKŠ had to be expanded for the adding with four classroom, central wardrobe and lobby with foyer. The new part of the building had to be placed ahead of the school complex without causing the shading effect and natural light reduce to existing building. The main idea was the incorporation of new building between the existing structure in the background and the public space at the foreground.
The new-undergrounded schoolhouse was placed shifted from the existing building in order to win the inside courtyard – atrium and it was designed, covered with the extensive green roof, which elongates the public space on the ground level. The north façade of the house is the glass structure providing the natural light and fresh air through the open atrium. The inside atrium on the underground level has to become a functional open space for students to relax and recover between the lectures, without leaving the school complex. It also have to become important visual and ambience quality as extension of lecture rooms. The classrooms need to exert as learning landscape in order to significantly influence the performance of wellbeing and mind efficiency of children and youth. The linear forms of structure, light strips and furniture stimulate the movement and support the space crossing without determining the place as final destination. Completely renewed had to be the entrance patio with lobby and foyer.
