Construction and remodelling of the horticulture school, Niederlenz

The existing horticulture school in Niedelenz, built in 1975, was not fulfilling the structural requirements anymore, and threatened to become an abandoned building. The SGF, bearer of the school, decided to replace the premises.

The existing functional building was dismantled, after what the new school was built on the initial foundation. The chosen volume is a rectangular structure. In it middle, a “soft” element of glass and iron frames the connecting area to the existing boarding school.
