How do we transform a 1950's school and a 1960's sports hall to a new social meeting point? The old school building by Erik Bryggman with yellow brick facades is a fine architectural example of it's time. It has, however, become too small and old fashioned for todays demands. The high school is lacking a flexible multifunctional space for comtemporary teaching methods, social gatherings and leisure. The new construction will be an inspiring, contemporary addition to the high school and it creates a new welcoming entrance plaza to the school and its activities. The characteristic roof of the extension is adjusted to the scale of the small detached houses in the neighborhood.
