Steinfurt‘s vocational school for technical professions was refurbished without stopping operations and expanded by new construction of a multifunction room and a sports hall. At the center of the refurbishment design are six light wells, which bring air and light to inner windowless rooms, making them more attractive.
The energy upgrading of the exterior façade and roof was carried out through the installation of new windows and an insulated facing wall, complemented by a ventilation system. A large multifunctional room, which can be divided for school operations into two large classes, is directly connected to the central corridor.
Heating and cooling of the classrooms is optimized using climate walls. Developed jointly with the Steinfurt University of Applied Sciences, the building elements use well water for air conditioning. In the course of the building measures, the sports hall was renovated and expanded.
