Henri Dunant School Frankfurt

Execution: 2018 - 2021 Construction Costs: ca. 12.0 Mio € Location: Frankfurt-Sossenheim Client: Town of Frankfurt Photography: Marcus Ebener

A new building for the Henri Dunant Primary School has been constructed on the school campus on Schaumburger Strasse in Frankfurt-Sossenheim. The design follows the principle of “school as a living environment”: In addition to classrooms for regular school activities, spaces for learning and leisure outside of regular classes have been created. The shape and positioning of the angular-shaped new building strengthens the centre of the school campus by forming a central courtyard. The primary school is accessed via this courtyard. The lower level features large trees and a meadow area, creating a natural garden atmosphere.
