Our team wotn the invited architectural competition for Sipoonlahti school (2015-16) together with Architects Frondelius+Keppo+Salmenperä Ltd. The project’s aim is to extend the existing school building and kindergarten, transform the existing buildings into a future learning environment and to develop the surrounding area into an open sports and learning park. The competition task was exceptionally broad: together with our pedagogic designer, we developed a pedagogic concept for the school and drafted the school’s room program as a part of the competition.
