Text description provided by the architects. The switch to all-day schooling necessitated the construction of an extension on the site of the traditional Martino- Katharineum High School in the historical Old Town of Braunschweig.

The new building houses an events room, a stage for theatrical productions, music and assembly rooms, and a media center. Applied with coarse brush strokes, there is a tactile element in the design of the sand-colored plaster. The white architraves, each of which frames a special view, emphasize the irregular configuration of the windows.
