Some buildings of the ensemble had already been structurally completed when Synarchitects got involved in the project.

The new buildings consist of extensions to the central building, a refectory, connecting bridges and the entrance building. In addition, the landscape and the sporting fields had been designed and constructed. The conceptual idea visually divides the central building's long cubature with extensions. By adding courtyards to the volume, we bring daylight and fresh air into the building.
