Modern architecture in rural surroundings
Everyone in the area is talking about Hessenwald School. The professionals, the local community, the pupils, the users and the teachers are all excited about the new school complex.
The school has 700 pupils from surrounding towns and villages. Despite its size, Stuttgart-based architectural firm Wulf Architekten has succeeded in integrating the building with its surroundings (by means of a cluster-like pavilion design), whilst at the same time translating the open pedagogical concept into a clear and contemporary architectural language. At the centre is a well-lit and well-ventilated atrium that ties the whole complex together.
