Ruggenacher Schoolhouse, Regensdorf ZH
Studios and discussion areas replace classrooms
Ruggenacher School with its four houses has been reorganised in the form of a studio school. The aim is to transfer more responsibility to the young students. The new school system requires conversion work to be done.
One house has been expanded and one has given way to a replacement building. The new building concept allows learning environments to be established which each share a discussion room on the upper floors. These "palavria" are equipped with a skylight which has been moved in the floor plan, and the peripheral rooms are flexible. The learning centre, the workshops, canteen and kitchen are all to found on the ground floor of the new building.
It proved possible to set up four learning environments in the minimally extended and adapted Building A which now also has wheelchair access.
