phoenix volksschule

  • A former office building of Siemens Austria is renovated to accomodate a primary school. The main intervention is the colouring of the facade. Here playfull colours are used to indicate the building’s new function. The blue and white colour gradient makes the building ‘disappear’ in the sky and this way look lower.

  • Το έργο αφορά στη μετατροπή κτιρίου γραφείων της Siemens για τις ανάγκες δημοτικού σχολείου. Τα χαρακτηριστικά ζωντανά χρώματα στις όψεις του κτιρίου εκφράζουν τη νέα χρήση. Η εναλλαγή μπλε και λευκού χρώματος κάνει το κτίριο να ‘χάνεται’ στον ουρανό και να μειώνεται οπτικά ο όγκος του.
