The Kestenholz Primary School is represented in terms of town planning owing to the old building, which is situated in Gäustrasse as a typical representative of the symmetrically designed 19th century village schools. After the deconstruction of the extension buildings and the addition of the new building this beautiful typical overall appearance of the locality is to be maintained. The Kaspar project therefore proposes a building volume that on the one hand, respectfully complements the old building and on the other hand, strengthens it in terms of town building through an adequate powerful position. The external appearance of the new building is based on the compactness and altitude development of the old building. By that very fact and due to the inclined roof the volume can fit in well with the urban jewel in the crown – the community of Kestenholz. An open arcade corridor serves as a connection between the three parts of the school building, which is creatively and spatially developed out of the ground floor from the new building. This is completely glazed to the playground and can be understood as an extension of the exterior space into the building, as an inner passage. Vertical access is via a single-flight staircase or the elevator, which are placed as separated cubes in the passage. They lead to the foyers of the two upper floors from which the classrooms and half-classrooms lead off. They are dimensioned in such a way so as to further school activities (reading, exhibiting, painting, etc.) can take place there in accordance with fire protection regulations. A large panoramic window, in which the reveal serves as a seating accomodation for the children, establish a link to the playground as well. The classrooms however face north-east to the opposing side of the playground and enable undisturbed learning. If required, it is possible to combine two classrooms with one half classroom on each floor.
