Oak House School - Accoya

Grupo Gámiz as Manufacturers

The Oak House School Baccalaureate Campus was completed in 2015 with Accoya® being used to build the facade of its new campus in Barcelona. Located next to an old villa in the school garden, the newly built campus was designed to provide functionality and character to a space used to prepare students for university. Designed by Trasbordo arquitectos, the facade of the building was created using several wooden Accoya® boards to provide natural ventilation and reduce the glare of the sun entering the classrooms. The Accoya® boards also absorbs external noise and reduce the sound that enters the rooms. Accoya® was also used to clad the upper floor of the School. The new building houses a conference room with cutting-edge technology, a library, separate classrooms and recreational spaces. The external Accoya® facade acts as a path around the building, guiding the students between the classrooms and the French garden.
