Competition Primary School with After-School Care, Day-Care Center, and Sports Hall in Potsdam-Krampnitz

Our competition entry for the development of a primary school with after-school care, a day care center, and a sports hall for the currently emerging Potsdam district of Krampnitz has been distinguished with a 2nd place. The design fits into its surroundings, a former military base with a strong genius loci, by completing and reinterpreting it. The two landmarked barracks buildings on the site, whose original facades will be restored, provide space for the day-care center and the after-school care program.

The complex, which is in direct proximity to the central municipal park, is complemented by an elongated new building that houses both the primary school and the sports hall, bringing the sequence of open spaces to completion. Together with the existing buildings, the new building forms a shared schoolyard, creating a harmonious ensemble.
The new facade, which comprises floor-to-ceiling wood framed windows and precast concrete elements that emphasize the structure and guide the eye, gives the two-story building a transparent and delicate appearance. On the roof will be a sports landscape that can be reached from the schoolyard via an iconic cascading stair – and which is accessible to the entire neighborhood every afternoon. In accordance with the learning house concept, open learning landscapes and clusters not only ensure diverse teaching opportunities but also a flexible use of space. A visible concrete structure and lots of wood create a comfortable atmosphere. As a result, the school building becomes an attractive learning and living environment that offers high potential for identification.
