Rasht Hybrid School

Best Project of Building or Facility by Student

About the project
This hybrid school is designed for both elementary school students of the age of 6, to high school students. It is a partly age-divided school with the junior classes at right, while left part house the older pupils and is prepared for age-division as well as age-integration.
The older pupils share a large, age integrated home area spread over two floors where the pupils become part of a larger community across age differences. these areas can easily be adjusted to become age differentiated.
In order to provide a safe environment for the younger children, the elementary part has its own home area with small clusters that are separated from the other pupils. Their home area is located at the heart of the school in connection with indoor and outdoor facilities and underpin the more restricted movement radius.
A soaring atrium near the entrance allows profuse daylight as well as natural ventilation into the center of the building, leading to a double-height school square.
