Dornbirn Edlach Primary School
Edlach Primary School is located amongst a planned group of predominantly two-storey buildings from the 1970s with set-back upper storeys. Cukrowicz Nachbaur’s extension of the existing school building is lateral only, respecting both the orthogonal site planning and two-storey stepped building volumes of the surroundings. The new building also adopts the theme of three adjoined buildings from its neighbours. A fluent layout across both storeys makes for intuitive navigation and short internal distances. From outside, the two-storey volume integrates seamlessly with its surroundings.
