Längenfeldgasse Primary and Vocational School
by PPAG Architects

Hertha Hurnaus

This highly urban extension building for a pre-existing school campus contains a novel combination of a 17 class primary school, children 6-10-year-old students, and a vocational school consisting of 23 classes, 15-19-year-old students.

Throughout all layers and scales, technology and architecture are oriented towards educational needs and functionality.

The school is both a teaching tool and a space for movement and action. The building fosters modern pedagogy, features innovative school furniture and reveals surprising learning landscapes – both inside and outside.

PPAG architects' goal is to create a free, relaxed and joyful learning experience for all.

This project has been longlisted in the civic building category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
