Linking daylight and lighting design to enhance learning space
Updated: Sep 16
Back in 2016 the community of Würlingen, Switzerland detected the need for additional classrooms.
The number of children was expected to rise significantly. So they wanted to build four additional primary school departments, two kindergarten departments and one double gymnasium.
The architects who created this building collected all information regarding solar position and designed the classrooms in a way they don’t block daylight impact unlike most classrooms. They managed to create a feeling of openness and closeness at the same time, they play with daylight and artificial light in such a way you think there is only daylight coming in.
