A Finnish school in year 2016

This week I visited the brand new Valteri School of Onerva in Jyväskylä. The school was opened in January 2016 and it is a great example of the schools today. The staircase makes the heart of the school together with a restaurant, library, cafe and waiting area. From there you can go to the learning areas for the different teams. In these areas “the classrooms” open up to an open learning environment where the silent rooms are situated. The learning space concept is based on my final work in the Lahti Institute of design (read more about it in here).

The project development was done by KVA Architects Ltd and the architectural design and planning were done by the architect office of Aarne von Boehm Ltd.
