Innovative school
Lonate Ceppino - first prize
In 2016 Italian government promoted a big architectural competition to rethink the idea of school’s typology. 51 municipalities applied to get their own competitions (and schools). We participated for the new school in Lonate Ceppino where two old schools (primary and secondary) need to be joined in a new and unique building. Our winning proposal partially broke the projet’s briefing. Following the Scandinavian school typology we propose a clear and simple building where a big atrium works as a library, canteen, entrance hall and connects all the classrooms. A 7x7m module hosts the typical classroom and allows spaces’ flexibility.
