Heilpädagogisches Zentrum Innerschwyz

The compact volume, which is differentiated in height, reacts to the existing situation. The positioning of the building enables a spacious outdoor area as a playground for the pupils. The presence of the school on site reminds of the institutional buildings which were traditionally lined up along the Gotthardstrasse, such as the former municipal hall or the orphanage. The compactness of the building helps to reach the Minergie A-Label.

The floor plan layout is clear and simply structured. All the necessary secondary rooms are located within the concrete core. The class rooms are situated in the southwest, the special rooms in the northeast. In order to avoid expensive static exceptions, the over high gym room is located on the fourth floor. The library, resting rooms and the kitchen are on the quiet top floor. Here additional outdoor space is offered by a spacious terrace.

The wood element construction method can be seen in the façade and is defined by repetition and fine nuances in the surface. The horizontal cornices divide the building vertically. They function as weather- and heat protection as well as fire latch. The different levels between horizontal bands, wooden frames, spruce boards and windows create a rhythmic and fine shadow pattern, which gives the façade depth and expresses the clear structure.
