The 1970s workshops and a boarding school area were converted and supplemented with a new building with teaching rooms, offices and additional residential rooms.
The central staircase connects the old building’s four storeys with the new cube, which seems to float above the single-storey workshop area. As the old building was unable to support any additional load, four props support the new upper storeys on a sculpturally designed so-called table.

The shiny brown ceramic cladding was deliberately chosen as a unique selling point for a Butchers’ School. It is also easy to maintain, and durable. The tiled skin was chosen because of its thematic implications, and takes up a dialogue with the brick theme of the outdoor facilities, which is derived from the urban context.
