Lun is the result of a challenge of building a school homebase for 90 pupils attending 5th-7th grade, based on modular timber barracks. Whilst it relates to the criterias of the Norwegian building codes, it also challenges the traditional norms of a learning situation, taking modern methods of learning into account.
The layout of the classrooms aims to provide for a good learning situation for a wider spectrum of personalities. Through different sones and flexible furnishing that can be adapted to several learning situations. Whether it be the need of physical activities, a calmer sone with less noise, a mobile project wall or a group room, the layout can be adapted to serve the needs of the moment.
The staircase in the center of the buildings common area, acts as the heart of the facilities. Lit up by the skylight above, it serves as an auditorium for shows taking place in front of the curved library wall, as well as hosting playful activities underneath. With a corc surface it ensures better acoustics and softer stumbles.
Reassessing the way colours are being used in architecture today, the merging of materials and pigment through glasing arose as a more relevant option than opaque surfaces. The achieved expression leaves more room for imagination without under or over stimulating the pupils in the room.
