Angedair primary school, Landeck in Tyrol
The primary school in Landeck, a historic district capital in Tyrol, was in urgent need of an upgrade. The school required a lot of additional space for pupils and a greater degree of transparency, while the layout of the spaces needed to be reorganised to facilitate contemporary teaching methods.
We renovated the important parts of the building fabric and demolished a section, creating a gap in which we inserted a new classroom wing. The extension in the courtyard houses a sports hall that is embedded in the ground and a new school hall; the generously dimensioned terrace on its roof can be used during breaks from lessons. In the schoolyard the extension clearly identifies the new main entrance.
All those involved took careful account of our requirements. The architects implemented their ideas inside the building rather than erecting a monument to themselves outside.

Closing the gap on the western side has accentuated the historic building, which now stands there in a calm and self-assured way. As a result, those very qualities that led to it being declared a listed building have been strengthened and the school’s dominant position on the square has been underlined.
The new Angedair primary school feels like a huge living room for the children with various spaces for learning and playing, indoors and outdoors.

Continuing the building
Adapting the school’s two upper floors to provide the desired open landscapes for learning was a relatively simple matter. We positioned the learning zones at the corners of the building, where they receive daylight from two sides. By removing a number of the existing walls and using mobile space dividers instead, the neighbouring classrooms can be integrated in these zones or separated from them, if and when required.
Architects, school administration and town council worked closely together on this project – as a result we have an inviting, modern school that teachers and students feel completely comfortable in.
