Volta School

Miller & Maranta as Architects

The Volta Schulhaus is located on the outskirts of Basel's industrial zone, on the site of the district heating power station. It accommodates 12 primary classes and contains a double-hall gymnasium within the underground floors.


The constricted situation on the south side of the existing coal storage hall was solved via a layered structure between the school rooms and an arrangement of internal courtyards. The superimposition of the school rooms over the gymnasium was made possible by a particular static solution.
