The Hamburg based Spengler Wiescholek realised this new school building situated at HafenCity (Harbour City), Europe’s largest construction area. Beside the school this “hybrid” building also features a kindergarten and a nursery with a common canteen. Furthermore there are 30 apartments.
Due to shortage of space the schoolyard is situated on the roof top of the five storeyed building. This unconventional opne area caused severe discussions among the the Hamburg people and politicians though.
