ZMIK Gmbh as Designers

New forms of teaching require new spatial structures and consensus. At the St. Johann primary school in Basel, we have reconstructed the three main corridors into multi-functional areas of learning and recreation. In a co-operation process, students and teachers developed their ideas and requirements as a basis for the project. We developed the basic ideas and integrated them into the historical fabric of the school. A pioneering spatial structure for new learning has emerged.


A «cave» and a «perch» are inviting retreats. Various work surfaces invite for individual and group work. Slide, balancing beams and bouncy balls support the concept of «dynamic lessons» whilst the lounge and the alcoves act as meeting and reading spaces. Expansive cloakroomareas form a bordertothecorridor.
