The L-shaped building maximised the use of the existing land. This shape created an interior courtyard area, which is used as a forecourt and as the main entrance foyer.

Part of the assembly hall and the plant room were lowered into the ground to create a ground-floor entrance for both floors. The resulting artificially created hill is used as a garden.

The visible quality BBS elements enable a high degree of prefabrication. The load-bearing interior walls are constructed using visible quality binderholz CLT BBS. The high level of prefabrication made it possible to make the school building rain-tight within the shortest period of time. The ceilings and roof surfaces are designed using a solid 'Brettstapel' construction.
