International School of Debrecen

Our concept for the International School of Debrecen was based on the form of a circle. This simple, yet symbolic shape traditionally means protection, union and community, while it softly blends into the neighbouring forest area of the Natura 2000 protected 'Nagyerdő'. The site is located near Nagyerdő, the city park of Debrecen, in a developing and popular residential area called ‘Pallag’. This calm, natural environment provides an excellent background for a school.
