middle school

building design

The new extension of the middle school, called “Filzi/Franzelin”, is part of a greater school complex in the small town of Laives, in the south neighborhoods of Bolzano. This new extension becomes part of the existing volume of the plot, with the aim to fulfill the area. It seems that the new building was already planned when the whole complex was originally built. The new building’s facade is strongly different from the existing buildings of the area. This is characterized by the use of large glazed windows both towards the courtyard and the external part of  the building. This building follows the CasaClimaB environmental certification.
