Students of Aspernstrasse are greeted by lentiform shapes twining around the glas front of the building. The new school in Hirschstetten was designed as a structure with two horizontal accentuated emphasis wings with classrooms.
The glass south-facing atrium with the library in a distinctive loft conversion gives an architectural identity in an area with few other architectural landmarks. The »Contistreifen« serves as a backbone between the public front courtyard and the private area of the inner courtyard.
