“B³ Gadamerplatz” school and community centre is located in the new urban district of Bahnstadt in Heidelberg, Germany. The “3-in-1” building consists of a primary school with sports facilities, a kindergarten and a community centre. The goal of the project is to provide an educational and cultural space for all age groups and to allow collaboration and interaction between them. The building complex offers a cross-shaped inner courtyard, which is divided into a kindergarten and a primary school part. The latter is open to the public outside of school hours and then serves as a playground. The three usage components of the complex are situated in independent buildings, which are linked by colonnade-like connecting structures that provide additional recreational space and a good outlook to the nearby urban environment.
